Subject: Lyr Req: Dandy Vernon never say no to a jar

Hi all you hard drinking musical men out there. Any one got the lyrics to this?
chorus as I remember it goes:-
    Take your stand as a drinking man never say no to a jar
    Take your stand as a drinking man never say no to a jar
    from calyio to ............
    from ..... to zanzibar
    Take your stand as a drinking man never say no to a jar.

Heard it at Lancaster & thought it might be fun to do,

Cheers,
Doxy

Hi Boys,
I'll sort myself on as a member (about time). It's only the words I need, I've got the melody so can work out harmony myself (well I think what I do is harmonic).
2am on a Tuesday night..............and you went on line afterwards? you must be made of stern stuff!

Perhaps worth mentioning that Noel has this lovely 1 2 3 4 accompaniment
d string
low D second fret 6th string
G chord sixth string
A7 5th string

DANDY VERNON

I'll tell you a tale of a sailor bold; his name was Dandy Vernon.
He worked as a steward on the old Cunard, and money he was earnin'.
He knew his way round every port; he wandered near and far,
And he took his stand as a drinkin' man and never said no to a jar, boys,
Never said no to a jar.

CHORUS: Take your stand as a drinkin' man; never say no to a jar.
Take your stand as a drinking man; never say no to a jar.
In Amsterdam or Yucatan, New York or Zanzibar,
Take your stand as a drinking man; never say no to a jar.

Now Dandy likes the sailor's life; it agrees with his ambition,
For to see the world and meet the girls was Dandy's given mission.
He's stolen hearts in every port; he's known in every bar,
And he took his stand, etc.

There comes a time in most men's lives when they get tired of roamin',
And the roaring fire is their desire, and the glass of ale a-foamin',
But then you have your dandies who need the ooh-la-la,
And take their stand, etc.

Now Dandy's getting thin on top and thick around the middle,
But the girls still sigh at his twinkling eye, the charmin', yarnin' devil,
And he's welcome still in every port, specially after dark,
When he takes his stand, etc.


that's about it apart from nyah nyah nyahs, and really you need the old celtic chtuzpah to pull them off
perhaps also worth mentining the late and rather smashing Aiden Foord is fiddling on Noel's recording.

all the best

Big Al
you are a scholar and a gentleman. Many thanks. Nice to know what was done on the guitar, but a bit tricky on the melodeon. Hope to have this fit for out in about 4 weeks,
Thanks again,
Doxy

The proper title of the song is DANDY VERNON. It was written by Michael Snow and he sings it on his album "Never Say No to a Jar" (2003).
