THE RED LIGHT SALOON
(From the Singing of Willis Norrad)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman' pp249-250)
A trip down to Bang-or, the Forth of Ju-ly:
To make my con-nect-tion with a train I did try.
The train it being late, as you all will know soon,
I was forced to take a trip to the Red Light Sa-loon.
I boldly walked in and stepped up to the bar,
When a saucy young damsel says, "Have a cigar"
A cigar I did take, in a chair I sat down,
When a saucy young damsel came tripping around.
She boldly came over, sit down on my knee,
Saying Jack you're a woodsman, that I plainly see.
Saying, Jack you're a woodsman, and that we all know.
Your muscle is hard from your head to your toe.
Per Doerflinger - "a song that will never be printed in full"
