FREE He that Drinks is Immortal Sheet Music!

This old English Drinking Song written by Henry Purcell in the late 17th century speaks to the invigorating qualities of drink. How can one shrivel and die when he is always wet from drink!?


He that drinks is immortal,
He that drinks is immortal
And can ne’er decay!
For wine still supplies,
For wine still supplies
What age wears away!
How can he be dust,
How can he be dust
That moistens his clay?
