Maine Lumberjacks             17
7     So when we get them down to the mill,
T is drink round, brave boys! drink round, brave boys! So when we get them down to the mill,
Jolly brave boys are we; And when we get them down to the mill, We'll call for liquor and drink our fill,
Heigh ho! drink round, brave boys,
Jolly brave boys are we.
8     The merchant he takes us by the hand,
Drink round, brave boys! drink round, brave boys! The merchant he takes us by the hand,
And "jolly brave boys are we"\ The merchant he takes us by the hand, Saying, "Sirs, I \iwt goods at your command";
But heigh ho! drink round, brave boys,
The money will foot up a "spree."
