“This song is about Portland’s own most infamous bootlegger during prohibition, who happened to be a woman… known also for opium distribution, and shanghaiing unsuspecting patrons.” --Ashleigh Flynn

“Prohibition Rose” Lyrics:

Prohibition Rose,, knows what she knows,

From her hips to her toes - beneath her petticoat!

All day and into night, sailors while their time away

In her opium dens spending all their pay

Swilling her booze as they wait…

 

From Old Town to Old Shanghai,

the boys wake up under another sky!

They know how and they can’t ask why

When they wake from sleep in their bare feet

Shackled on a ship to the Far East.

 

Stumptown’s fairest queen, a

Denizen of the underground scene.

Rosie’s got the guile to get you a little high.

But not drop of hooch around

When the cops bust in like a pack of hounds.

Just Rosie readin’ from her bible –

With all the Whiskey stashed underneath her skirt…

 

From Old Town to Old Shanghai…
