​The Wine Flowed Freely

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Help Stamp Out Loneliness (1967).

All the days of my youth I remember so well
I lived in a world on my own
Nobody cared where my money came from
When I had it I wasn't alone

Oh, the wine flowed freely and friendship was mine
How they all loved me back then
But here in this prison I sit all alone
And now where are all of my friends

So drink and be marry if this is your wish
Of waste your young life out in sin
But remember someday you may be as I am
With nothing not even a friend

Oh, the wine flowed freely and friendship was mine
How they all loved me back then
But here in this prison I sit all alone
And now where are all of my friends

So here's to the freedom I never shall have
I know it's not long till the end
But I'd rather be dead than to spend ninety years
With the cold prison walls for a friend
