Uncle Sam's Farm - Temperance Song

Uncle Sam's Farm - Temperance Song American History Social Studies Music

Image of a song sheet for A Parody on Uncle Sam's Farm, by Professor Field.

One of the verses sums-up the problem women were having with their husbands (who were spending too much of the family income on alcohol):

The drunkard is so foolish that he will money waste,
On liquor, when there's water more pleasant to the taste;
The water is much cheaper, and much more healthy too
And never makes a man a fool - which liquors often do.
