“Don't Sell Daddy Anymore Whiskey”


" Don't sell Daddy anymore whiskey, for I know it will take him away, We all are hungry and Mama is weeping, don't sell him no whiskey today." The child says father is kind when sober, but cruel when drunk, and begs the bartender to cut him off


When Paul Stamler sent me this, he asked if it is the same as "Don't Sell Him Any More Rum." Obviously the plots are the same. The forms are different enough, though, that I decided to split them. - RBW
