Subject: Words for Abenezer Cobb
I am going through all my notes and diaries trying to dredge up all the songs I have sung over the years.

I have found Abenezer Cobb - he seems to have been quite a character and I would love to get all the words in the right order - does anyone recognise it? It starts:

Abenezer Cobb did away with sin
My body is my church he said,
God's dwelling is within
All I do is holy, Abenezer cried
Gave his loving freely
A ranter till he died


Drink a loving cup to Abenezer, Abenezer
He's a drinking dancing roaring ranter
Abenezer Cobb, Abenezer Cobb
