Thread Name: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
Subject: RE: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
I collected an American version of "All Gone for Grog" from a gal in Connecticut who had it from her grandfather who lived in South Carolina. Caroline and I recorded it on our New Harmony (C-100). Can't consider it a genuine "American" drinking song, however, since it has British roots. What about "We never stagger, we never fall; we sober up on wood alcohol... etc." We all grew up singing that one. Was it mentioned earlier? If so, I apologize for the duplication. It's very late!
