Thread Name: Origin: Away, Away with Rum, by Gum
Subject: RE: Origin - Away away with rum
Thanks Bob, you have confirmed what I thought. I am still reading all the posts and trying to come to some conclusions. As with many of these songs the origin may well be lost but it looks like it was brought to life by a burst of creativity in the 50's and well sung from then on
