ALABAMA'S CREW
(Andrea Aldridge)
Lyrics

When the Alabama's crew was laid
Roll Alabama Roll
They were laid on the day that they got paid
Oh roll, Alabama Roll

They were laid in the house of Madame Laird
They were laid in the town of Maidenhead

At the Bull and Bear they downed their swill
At the Grey Horse they got drunker still

Down the cobbled streets they staggered forth
To Madame Laird's to prove their worth

Her girls lay waiting night and day
To collect their share of prize mo-nay

There many a sailor saw his doom
When he entered Miss Eliza's room

She challanged him to a roll and lay
The pride of the floored and the soused na-vay

It was then they found to their dismay
One shot too many took the urge away

At the three bottle limit in '64
The Alabamans rose no more.
