Old Drinking Song; "The King will take the Queen, etc"

Recommended Posts

I am searching for the origins of "The King wil take the Queen, and the Queen will take the Jack, etc"

It is in the Princeton Songbook of 1900, and then says, "Used by permission of The John Church Co., owners of the copyright."

I am trying to track down where it came from; who sang, used or published it before.

I appreciate your help.

The only thing I found was that a band called Fairport Convention recorded it as The Card Song on the Five Seasons label.

Apart from that, I found out that there are more Irish drinking songs than even I thought possible. :stars:
