Those days long past

It was Jock of course
"Aye she's a sassy lassy"
He said beer in hand

He came from Glasgow
We met every Friday night
At the Bakers Arms

Born in the Gorbals
Drank us under the table
He just got noisy

All brawn, raw language
Had an eye for a sweet girl
Quick to take offence

Married Jim's sister
That sure quietened him down
Oh those days long past

Wish I could go back
To be that young man again
Drinking in the pub

  1. My pub days were of a completely different nature. I'm glad to be done with them, though dancing on the tables was fun.

    1. Those were the days 50+ years ago!

  3. I am kind of glad it's over - but then i am a shut in.. ;)

  4. If that long ago it could have been whiskey-American popular then!
