Happy Birthday!

The heroic founder of the World Woman's Christian Temperance Union, (WCTU) in 1883

Frances Willard

born 9/28/1839

        We're coming, we're coming, our brave little band
        On the right side of temperance we do take our stand
        We don't use tobacco, because we do think
        The people who use it are likely to drink

                Away, away with rum by gum, with rum by gum, with rum by gum
                Away, away with rum by gum, the song of the temperance union

The Furey, Finbar Furey born Sept 28, 1946 champion uillean piper & good at it, too.
"Queen of The Blues" Koko Taylor (nee Cora Walton) born Sept. 28, 1935, Memphis, TN.

      Away, away with rum, by gum (etc)

We never eat fruitcake because it has rum,
And one little bite puts a man on the bum.
Oh, can you imagine a sorrier sight
Than a man eating fruitcake until he gets tight?
      Away, away (etc)

Oh, man--those were the good ol' days.                  Tw
