Lyrics

I've travelled all over this world
And now to another I go
And I know that good quarters are waiting
To welcome old Rosin the Bow

To welcome ol Rosin the Bow
To welcome old Rosin the Bow
And I know that good quarters are waiting
To welcome old Rosin the Bow

When I'm dead and laid out on the counter
A voice you will hear from below
Saying send down a hogshead of whiskey
To drink with old Rosin the Bow

To drink with old Rosin the Bow
To drink with old Rosin the Bow
Saying send down a hogshead of whiskey
To drink with old Rosin the Bow

And get a half dozen stout fellows
And stack them all up in a row
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Bow

To the memory of Rosin the Bow
To the memory of Rosin the Bow
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Bow

Get this half dozen stout fellows
And let them all stagger and go
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Bow

And in it put Rosin the Bow
And in it put Rosin the Bow
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Bow

Get ye a couple of bottles
Put one at me head and me toe
With a diamond ring scratch upon them
The name of old Rosin the Bow

The name of old Rosin the Bow
The name of old Rosin the Bow
With a diamond ring scratch upon them
The name of old Rosin the Bow

I feel that old tyrant approaching
That cruel remorseless old foe
And I lift up me glass in his honour
Take a drink with old Rosin the Bow

Take a drink with old Rosin the Bow
Take a drink with old Rosin the Bow
And I lift up me glass in his honour
Take a drink with old Rosin the Bow
