Notes: Poem from Robert Service, "Rhymes of a Red Cross Man" (1916). C.B. means "Confined to Barracks", presumably for bad behavior; Pelf is money; and Hollands is gin from Holland.Bob Zentz has once again done a masterful job of setting a poem to a tune that does everything to bring full meaning to the story.
