Slugging a Vampire
First line:
I closed and drew, but not a gun
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Slugging a Vampire (1902) was originally composed to Rudyard Kipling’s poem Tarrant Moss, but as with Tolerance Kipling’s agreement was not forthcoming. So in 114 Songs Ives left most of the voice-part blank, then wrote his own text so the song could be reprinted in a collection of 19 Songs in 1935.
