I've been invited to play at a small get-together on Friday on the condition that I dress like a cowboy and sing dirty folk songs. I don't know any, so I'm turning to you, hive-mind.

Dave van Ronk does a great acapella rendition of thisthere may in fact be no other way to sing it. The North Atlantic Squadron a racy seafaring songnot a cowboy one, but along the same lines. Similarly The Good Ship Venus. I share jessamyn's love of DvR, but come on, that's not a period folk song. The Hash House Harriers have an almost bottomless set of dirty songs, many of which are set to the tune of traditional folk songs, or could otherwise be sung cowboy-style.

Bawdy, but maybe not raunchy enough? Still a favorite of mine. This thread is closed to new comments.For Businesses. Write a Review. The DBT is not, not a dive bar. It's carefully placed between a Calabasas hang out and a Woodland Hills bar. The crowd is fun, the staff is friendly and they have just moved up a notch. The new menu, new live band room and usual great service make it a must try. If you cant have a great time here, get some ice cream and a good movie.
The new salads are great too, but the old standards are still there. Worst place ever Want a DUI Go there Many cops are watching the place Security guard it's a totally asshole who likes to smoke weed People that know him.

Such songs are sometimes used as a Curse Cut Shorta character will be singing a well-known bawdy song and cut off a split-second before actually singing anything obscene.
Including snatches of bawdy songs in a scene indicates that characters are becoming relaxed and uninhibited at the very least. If the song happens to be something as explicit as "The Good Ship Venus" or "Barnacle Bill the Sailor," they are probably way past just "relaxed". An unseen incident of the singing of a bawdy song may be used to indicate that someone was drunk and disorderly or otherwise "out of order", especially if children, nuns or The Vicar happened to be present.
Allusion to the vicar knowing such a song is a deliberate example of incongruity. Rick the Vic from Hellblazer probably knows them all. In such cases the chosen song is usually one of the less explicit examples, "Roll Me Over in the Clover," for example. Many bawdy songs are themselves trope-laden, being replete with stereotyped characters, "wardrobe malfunctions", slapstick and cliches. Many are also examples of pastiche and parody or possibly Fan Ficbeing set to the tune of "real" folk songs, pop songs etc.

In April,the constables of Calne, Wiltshire, made a desperate plea to their superiors—the county magistrates—to help them reverse a surge in the number of alehouses in their town.
This has changed, and historians now see drinking as an activity that is culturally meaningful. Decisions about who to drink with, how to drink, what to drink, how to pay, how much to drink, how often to drink, and how to judge the drinking behavior of others, are thought to provide an insight into the underlying values of a society.
There is no archive expressly designed to capture this sort of everyday cultural activity, so we are extremely lucky to be able to access it through a remarkable source: seventeenth-century drinking songs. The broadside ballad was a particularly popular form of printed product in the seventeenth-century Anglo-American world. These were songs printed on a single sheet of paper and sold cheaply for a penny by sellers who recited them in the streets and in alehouses.
There were millions of these sheets in circulation; the staple subjects for the songs included courtship and marriage, affairs of state, sensational murders, chivalric adventures, and moral guidance.
These were drinking songs designed to be recited in the alehouse, and many alehouse-keepers pasted them up on the walls to attract drinkers to their establishment. It is amazing that any of these broadside ballads survive. They were cheap and ephemeral products, and often ended up being used as kindling or toilet paper when they became worn and unreadable, or when their songs fell out of favor.
The drinking songs amongst these surviving ballads are a unique form of evidence for answering questions about the character and meanings of seventeenth-century drinking culture.
They often contained warnings about the types of companion to avoid, or extrapolated the qualities of the ideal drinking companion:. Ile drinke to thee kinde Harry. Other songs attacked those who refused to engage in bouts of alehouse jollity as covetous misers, whose individualistic worldview posed a threat to communal solidarity:. These songs can be read and analyzed to reconstruct the key features of seventeenth-century English drinking culture and the broader societal values and assumptions that underpinned it, and doing precisely this has formed a large part of my historical research.
I can sit at my desk and read their words, but this is hardly giving me access to how these words would have been experienced by early modern drinkers. I sit quietly, alone, peacefully reading and reflecting on a ballad. They would have huddled around an ale bench, shoulder-to-shoulder with drinking companions, and bellowed out these words—they would have heard these songs as much as they read them.
Historians that have worked on broadside ballads have not been deaf to this aspect of their source material, and attempts have been made to recover something of their sound. Most of these songs specified the tune to which they should be sung, and it has been possible to reconstruct many of these melodies.For Businesses.
Write a Review. Had a terrible experience. Came in with a large party and two hours later no food for most of us. At one point a plate of food came out every 10 minutes Most of us left after 2 hours of waiting. I understand with large parties it's hectic but they knew we were coming and still didn't staff right.
They won't stay in business long if if this happens. Bad deal. This place is nice to come to after a long day at work. It's got a great atmosphere great service good music awesome food and ice cold beer all around it's a great bar when u come u have to get the chicken nachos and u have to ask for the bartender Emily she is amazing or meet the owner Eva she's awesome First and foremost Brett little blond you might might be cute but your service was very ugly.
The fact that we had to ask for silverware and napkins goes to show you the attention they pay you. I will continue to wine and dine until I find the right place. Oh well Prices are Awesome!
Food is OKAY! Service could improve. But atmosphere is great, I will definitely be returning. Come check it out. Nice beer selection and the food was really good. The staff was really nice and attentive. We called ahead days in advance and they had one cook. Our poor server took heat. We le aft after an hour and a half without getting any food. I can say if the food is good. To start service was horrible, no manager or owner onsite and that was just the start.
Next our group and others around waited and hour and a half and still no food. Reason was they said there was only one cook for this big place. No comp for drinks or apologies our group left as did others. They knew weeks before and the week and this is the best they had? Clear the owners passion and care for the restaurant is gone and more surprising lack of wanting to secure new customers or profit. Look to other places to go.
Stay Away. I will help others in the group to avoid a similar experience. Short on server's.
Karaoke time. Good served until midnight. Lively crowd. A lot of locals that the karaoke do caters. This is my 3rd time here and another great experience!
