DOWN WHERE THE DRUNKARDS ROLL

(Richard Thompson/Island Music Ltd.)

 

 

 

See the boys out walking,

The boys they look so fine
They’re dressed up in green velvet

And their silver buckles shine
Soon they will be bleary eyed under a keg of wine

 

Refrain

Down where the drunkards roll,

Down where the drunkards roll

 

See the lovers standing,

They’re staring at the ground
They’re looking for the real thing,

But lies is all they’ve found
You can have the real thing,

It will only cost a pound


Down where the drunkards roll,

Down where the drunkards roll

 

See the troubled woman,

She dreams a troubled dream
She lives out on the highway,

And she keeps her money clean
Soon she’ll be returning,

To the place where she’s the queen


Down where the drunkards roll,

Down where the drunkards roll

 

You can be a gambler,

Who never drew a hand
And you can be a sailor,

Who never left dry land
You can be Lord Jesus,

All the world will understand


Down where the drunkards roll,

Down where the drunkards roll.
