Drunkard's Home, The

DESCRIPTION: "No sun shines bright, no smiling face, No loving words to cheer and bless, But only woe and deep distress, No peace, no joy or songs of love, To [???] above, But is there and woe and gloom, Within the wretched drunkard's home."

NOTES: I wouldn't be surprised if this is a fragment of another drunkard song (perhaps a "Drunkard's Doom," not a "Drunkard's Home") -- but with less than a complete stanza in the BrownSchinhanV text, I can't identify it. - RBW
