Thread Name: Origin: Copper Kettle (Albert Frank Beddoe)
Subject: copper kettle and 1792
I just started singing copper kettle. As I like to understand what I'm singing, I'm wondering if anyone knows the significance of the year mentioned in the line "we ain't paid no whisky tax since 1792". That's all. Thanks.
