As I was looking through the lyrics of Soldier's Joy and came across the phrase "rosin the bow", I started wondering where the song title, "Rosin The Beau" came from. It seems as though it must have an interesting, and venerable, history. Well, with so many venerable and interesting people here, I thought I'd ask if any I&V Mudcatters could shed any light on this.
