Temperence Song

Cat. #0820 (MFH #22) - As sung by Mrs. Norman Engler, Lakeview, Arkansas on April 16, 1969

I'll go back to old England
I'll go home to my wife
I'll take care of my little children
All the rest of my life
There's a curse on th man
Who drinks his wife out of doors
I'll ge a good fellow
An' do so no more

(collected by Jerry Hays)
