Thread Name: Origin: Away, Away with Rum, by Gum
Subject: RE: Origin - Away away with rum
Les, yes, I have (access to) a copy locally. I've already put in this thread nearly everything that's to be gained from looking at the song in Randolph Vol 2. But here goes.

The song is nothing but a single verse on page 414 of Volume 2. It reads, in full:

Sung by Miss Rose O'Neill, Day, Mo., Sept 2, 1941. Learned about forty years ago.

We're coming, we're coming, our brave little band,
On the right side of temperance we loyally stand,
We don't use terbacker, for this is what we think,
Them that does use it most always does drink.

That's all: just that single verse. No chorus. You now have the complete Randolph entry, except for the tune.

Does that answer your question? Bob
