Thread Name: Wanted: Songs for alcoholics!
Subject: RE: Wanted: Songs for alcoholics!
Used to sing one years ago and now this is all I can remember:

Away, away with rum by gum,
With rum by gum, with rum by gum,
Away, away with rum by gum,
It's the song of the Salvation Army.

Maybe someone else knows this or where it came from. A tongue in cheek temperance song that I only have a chorus for is sung to the tune of Wabash Cannonball:

We're against all forms of gamblin',
All sex and liquor too,
And by our name we'll all be known,
As the W C T U.
