about

This is the only song on a record I play the banjo on. I hope to do more.

lyrics

Days of Rum:

She knew you in the time,
she was young and yearned to die.
She'd gaze at the light
in the corner in the night.

And the men would come to her
in the dead of old winter.
In the doldrums it was fine
to touch her body and her mind.

singing "dum, ditty dum, days of fun, days of rum"
singing "dum, ditty dum, days of fun, days of rum"

Scarlett in the wine, raise the bloody vine
oh she knew you in the time
she was young and yearned to die
but the roses never came
she was just some winter rain
and in her bed she lay
and she dreamt of a dying day

Singing "dum ditty dum, days of fun, days of rum"
singing "dum ditty dum, days of fun, days of rum"
