[Page 147]

I found that I was swearing & it gave me quite a fright
That night I vowed to drop my friends and seek the narrow path
But when the sun brought morning I forgot it with a laugh

They took me to a house and showed me how to play at cards
For pennies then for shillings, for the right I'd no regards
They gave me stuff to drink & though at first it tasted queer
I soon required no asking for to take a glass of beer.

It made me think I was a man and acted as men do,
Although I saw the shattered wrecks & well the cause I knew
