When I’m dead and laid out on the counter
A voice you will hear from below
Saying “Send down a hogshead of whiskey
To drink to old Rosin the Bow.”

To drink with old Rosin the Bow, me lads
To drink with old Rosin the Bow
Saying “Send down a hogshead of whiskey
To drink to old Rosin the Bow.”

And get a full dozen stout fellows
And stand them all up in a row
Let them drink out of half-gallon bottles
To the memory of old Rosin the Bow

To the memory Rosin the Bow, me lads
To the memory Rosin the Bow
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Bow

Now get this half a dozen stout fellows
And let them all stagger and go
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Bow

And in it put Rosin the Bow, me lads
And in it put Rosin the Bow
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Bow

Now get ye a couple of bottles
Put one at me head and me toe
With a diamond ring scratch out upon them
The name of the old Rosin Bow

The name of the old Rosin Bow, me lads
The name of the old Rosin Bow
With a diamond ring scratch out upon them
The name of the old Rosin Bow

I feel that old tyrant approaching
That cruel remorseless old foe
Let me lift up my glass in his honour
Take a drink with old Rosin Bow

Take a drink with old Rosin Bow, me lads
Take a drink with old Rosin Bow
Let me lift up my glass in his honour
Take a drink with old Rosin Bow
