Subject: RE: Origins: Rockingham Whiskey / Rockingham Cindy
Here's the version I want to submit to the Rise Again songbook. Any corrections?

ROCKINGHAM CINDY (I Get My Whiskey In Rockingham)

Where'd you get your whiskey, where'd you get your dram?
I got it from a little girl way down in Rockingham
Rocky Road Cindy, rocky road to town
Rocky Road Cindy, way down in Rockingham

I went down to Rockingham, I did not go to stay
I fell in love with a pretty girl and I could not get away

Lips as red as a red rose, her hair was huckleberry brown
The sweetest girl I ever saw, way down in Rockingham

First I kissed Cindy once & then I kissed her twice
I'll tell you where I kissed her, gonna kiss her there tonight

Related to "Cindy, Cindy," and often sung to the same melody.
