Subject: RE: Anti-alcohol, temperance songs
Well, I suppose you could consider this a temperance song: "Father's a Drunkard and Mother Is Dead". I haven't researched it--despite the promise of the title, it's rather a lame song--, so I don't know if temperance groups sang it to edify the misguided.
