Seven Drunken Nights # 1
This is one of seven versions I have found of a song
which seems to have been originally titled "Our Goodman".

Shickered As He Could Be | The Traveler

Now as I come home on Monday night
As drunk as drunk could be
I saw a coat behind the door,
Where my old coat should be
Well I called me wife and I says to her
Would you kindly tell to me
Who owns that coat behind the door
Where my old coat should be

Ah, you're drunk your drunk you silly old fool
You're drunk as drunk could be
For that's the lovely woolen blanket
That me mudder gave to me
Well it's many a days I travelled
A hundred miles or more
But buttons on a woolen blanket sure
I never saw before

Now as I come home on Tuesday night
As drunk as drunk could be
I saw a hat upon the mat,
Where my old hat should be
Well I called to me wife and I says to her
Now would you kindly tell to me
Who owns that hat thereon the mat
EWhere my old hat should be.

AH, you're drunk your drunk you silly old fool
You're blind you cannot see
For that's the lovely chamber pot

Well it's many a days I travelled
A hundred miles or more
But a chamber pot, with a rim like that
I never saw before

Where my old pipe should be.

AH, you're drunk your drunk you silly old fool

But tobaccy in a tin whistle sure
I never saw before
