The Drunkard Lyrics

The Camptown Races

Woooh...

Camptown racetrack five miles long
Doo-dah doo-dah
The Camptown ladies sing this song
Doo-dah doo-dah day

Camptown racetrack five miles long
Doo-dah doo-dah
Camptown ladies sing this song
Doo-dah doo-dah day

Gwine to run all night
Gwine to run all day
I'll bet my money on a bobtail nag
Somebody bet on the bay

I'm gwine to run all night
Oh, I'm gwine to run all day
I'll bet my money on a bobtail nag
And somebody bet on the bay

The Drunkard

I will walk the streets up, I will walk the streets
down
I will see the landlady dressed in a silk gown
With my elbows all out and my breeches without knees
You are the biggest vagabond that I ever did see.

Where I go so raggedy and you go so fine
It's of the good money you have took of mine
Ale and tobacco for you I have paid
If I ain't you'd have gone in your raggedy ways.

If I had a-listened to my old woman at the first
I might have had silver and gold in my purse
To maintain my wife and my children so small
But 'tis I, silly drunkard, have ruined them all.

I will cock up my hat as I had on before
And I'll go home to me wife and I'll love her no more
And the more I will beat her the more she will cry
And the more silly drunkard and blackguard am I.

I will walk the streets up, I will walk the streets
down
I will see the landlady dressed in a silk gown
With my elbows all out and my breeches without knees
You are the biggest vagabond that I ever did see.
