IN WINE THREE IS ALL. English, Air (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. "In wine there is all" is a convivial drinking song that begins:

In wine there is all that in life you can name,
It strengthens our friendships, in love aids the flame;
Then since, my brave boys, our life's but a span,
Let's live all our days, and let this be the plan,

CHO:
To drink, my brave boys, and drive away sorrow,
If the cash holds but out, we'll ne'er ask to borrow;
If the cash holds but out, we'll ne'er ask to borrow
Tho' poor rogues to-day, we'll be rich rogues tomorrow.

The song appears in The Gentleman's Bottle-Companion, containing a Collection of Curious, Uncommon and Humourous Songs; Most of which are Originals (London, 1768), The Goldfinch; or New Modern Songster (Glasgow, 1782), and similar publications.
