Origins: Down Where the Drunkards Roll (R Thompson

DigiTrad:
AS I ROVED OUT (2)
BAD NEW IS ALL THE WIND CAN CARRY
CRAZY MAN MICHAEL
DIMMING OF THE DAY
DOWN WHERE THE DRUNKARDS ROLL
DRAGGING THE RIVER
FAREWELL FAREWELL
GENESIS HALL
GREAT VALERIO
KILLING JAR
LOCH LOMOND 2
MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN
NOW BE THANKFUL
POOR WILL AND THE JOLLY HANGMAN
RAINBOW OVER THE HILL
SICKNESS AND DISEASES
SLOTH
THE DIMMING OF THE DAY (2)
THE OLD CHANGING WAY
TIME TO RING SOME CHANGES
TUIRSE MO CHROI
WALL OF DEATH
WHEN I'M PRIME MINISTER

Subject: Down Where the Drunkards Roll - history
From: Denis
Date: 21 Apr 97 - 07:35 PM

The fine Richard Thompson song named seems straightforward enough except for the first verse, which goes:

"See the boys out walking, the boys they look so fine,
dressed up in green velvet, their silver buckles shine,
Soon they'll be bleary-eyed under a keg of wine,
Down where the drunkards roll...".

Is this a specific historical reference? Did Richard have in mind 18th-century seamen? Does anybody know? Please advise. Thanks. Denis

I'll give it in two or three messages due to room restrictions:

Speedy Gonzales, why don't you come home?
Speedy Gonzales, how come you leave me all alone?

Hey Rosita, I have to go shopping
Downtown for my mamma.
She needs some tortillas and chilli peppers.
La la la, la la la la la la la la
La La La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la

Part Two:

Your dog is gonna have a puppy
And we're running out of coke
No enchiladas in the ice box
And the telebision's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweat shirt
I smell the purfume in your ear
Well, if you've gonna keep on messin'
Don't bring your business back here

Part Three (of my message, not of the song):

Speedy Gonzales, why don't you come home
Speedy Gonzales, how come you leave me all alone

Hey Rosita, come quick, down at the cantina
They're giving green stamps with tequila
La la la la la la la la .....


You're welcome!

Ooops! Left out the most important part, Part Zero:


It was a moonlit night in old Mexico
I walked alone between some old adobe haciendas
Suddenly I head the plain-tiff cry of a young Mexican girl

La la la, la la la la la la la
La la la, la la la la la la la la la la la la

You better come home Speedy Gonzales
Away from Cannery Row
Stop all of your drinkin'
With that floozy named Flo
Come on home to your adobe (cont.)

And slap some mud on the wall
The roof is leakin' like a strainer
There's lots of garbage in the hall
