Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,



You scrapers that want a good fiddle well strung,
you must go to the man that is old while he’s young,
but if this same fiddle you fain would play bold,
you must go to his son, who’ll be young when he’s old,
there’s old Young and young Young, both men of renown,
old sells, and young plays the best fiddle in town,
young and old live together and may they live long,
young to play an old fiddle, old to sell a new song.
