     G             '         '     C
I've traveled this world all over,
     G            '  Em      D
And now to another I go.
     G               '             '       C
And I know that good quarters are waiting
       G           '         '     ' 
For to welcome old Rosin the Beau.
     G         '         C         '
To welcome old Rosin the Beau.

And I know that good quarters are waiting

For to welcome old Rosin the Beau.


When I'm dead and laid out on the counter
A voice you will hear from below,
Saying "Send down a hogshead of whisky
To drink with old Rosin the Beau.
To drink with old Rosin the Beau.
To drink with old Rosin the Beau,
Saying "Send down a hogshead of whisky
To drink with old Rosin the Beau". 


Then get a half dozen stout fellows
And stack them all up in a row
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Beau
To the memory of Rosin the Beau
To the memory of Rosin the Beau
Let them drink out of half gallon bottles
To the memory of Rosin the Beau 


Then get a half dozen stout fellows
And let them all stagger and go
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Beau.
And in it put Rosin the Beau.
And in it put Rosin the Beau.
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Rosin the Beau. 


Then get ye a couple of bottles.
Put one at me head and me toe.
With a diamond ring scratch upon 'em
The name of old Rosin the Beau.
The name of old Rosin the Beau.
The name of old Rosin the Beau.
With a diamond ring scratch upon 'em
The name of old Rosin the Beau. 


I feel that old tyrant approaching,
That cruel remorseless old foe,
And I lift up me glass in his honour.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.
And I lift up me glass in his honour.
Take a drink with old Rosin the Beau.
