Another Good Man Gone Wrong.
Copyright, 1880, by Lee & Walker.
Words and Music by A. Sinnah.

Squire B was a banker, a high-toned man,
Of spotless reputation e'er his woes began;
No effort was complete without his name,
Of mercantile or social or religious aim.
But one day upon securities he "went it short,"
And tried to raise the wind on stocks by "going it long;"
But he "didn't know 'twas loaded and it made rare sport,
When the "boys" took up the chorus of this wicked song:

Another good man gone wrong,
Another good man gone wrong;
How the demons below
Stir the fires till they glow,
While they shout and they sing
Till the lower regions ring,
Another good man gone wrong,
Another good man gone wrong.

Brother D was a pastor, a high-toned saint.
The idol of his Mock until they "scraped his paint,"
And found beneath the coat their shepherd on the sly
Would "go for " all the girls to hug them fatherly.
They might have overlooked this for they'd "been there too"
But when he "kissed the cook "they cried he goes too strong;
So the deacons raised a rumpus and the pastor looks blue.
While the "boys " took up the chorus of this wicked song:-Cho.

Billy C was a cashier, a high-toned clerk,
Was trusted by the firm until they twigg'd his lark:
He always went to church and taught the infant class.
Was never known to "smile" but when he took a glass.
But one day rumors got about that "things wasn't straight."
That "champ, and oysters " lively boys had drawn him along,
That he back'd the tiger, went behind the scenes, and stay'd out late,
Then the "boys" look up the chorus of this wicked song.-Cho.
