Ol' Roison The Beau

This song is by Bob Dylan and appears on the box set The Bootleg Series Vol. 11: The Basement Tapes Complete (2014).

I've travelled all over this world
And now to another I go
And I know I should find good quarters
To wait and welcome Le Beau.
Welcome Ol' Roison Le Beau
To welcome Ol' Roison Le Beau
I know how good quarters are waitin'
For to welcome Ol' Roison Le Beau.

When I'm dead and laid out on the counter
A voice you will hear from below
Sayin', "Send out a hogshead of whiskey
To drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau".
To drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau
To drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau
Sayin', "Send out a hogshead of whiskey
To drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau".

Then get you half a dozen smart fellows
Let them all stagger an' go
And dig a great hole in the meadow
And in it put Roison Le Beau
And in it put Roison Le Beau
And in it put Roison Le Beau
Go dig you a hole in the meadow
And in it put Roison Le Beau.

And get you a half dozen barrels
Put water at me head and me toes
With a diamond ring scratch in upon it
With the name of Ol' Roison Le Beau.
With the name of Ol' Roison Le Beau
With the name of Ol' Roison Le Beau
With a diamond ring scratch in upon it
With the name of Ol' Roison Le Beau.

I hear that old tyrant approachin'
That cruel remorseless foe
And I lift up me glass in his honor
Take a drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau.
Take a drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau
Take a drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau
And I lift up my glass in his honor
Take a drink with Ol' Roison Le Beau.
