Sorry for the delay in getting this to you. Work has been hectic. The song
is actually called Drunkard's Hiccups and hails from the North Carolina
The Drunkard's Hiccups
I've played cards in England, I've gambled in Spain
Goin' back to Carolina, Gonna play my last hand.
Jack of Diamonds, Jack of Diamonds
I've known you from old
You've robbed my poor pockets
Of silver and gold.
Gonna eat when I'm hungry, Gonna drink when I'm dry
Get to feelin' much better, Gonna sprout wings and fly.
Gonna take down my fiddle, Gonna rosin up the bow
Make myself welcome, Wherever I go.
I'm gonna drink, I'm gonna gamble, All my money is my own
Them that don't like me, Can leave me alone
Gonna lean on the counter, I'm gonna let the glass ring
More brandy, more brandy, More brandy to bring.
If the river was whiskey, And I was a duck
I'd dive to the bottom, And I'd never come up
But the river ain't whiskey, And I ain't no duck
I'll play these drunkard hiccups, And trust to my luck.
