American Ballads and Folk Songs
I married a wife, oh, then, oh, then,
I married a wife, oh, thenó
I married a wife,
She's the plague of my life,
I wish I was single again.
My wife took sick, oh, then, oh, then, My wife took sick, oh, thenó My wife took sick, I went for the doctor right quick, I wish I was single again.
My wife she died, oh, then, oh, then,
My wife she died, oh, thenó
My wife she died,
Danged little cared I,
To think I was single again,
I married me another, oh, then, oh, then, I married me another, oh, thenó I married me another, She's the Devil's stepmother, And I wish I was single again.
She beat me, she banged me, oh, then, oh, then, She beat me, she banged me, oh, thenó She beat me, she banged me, She swore she would hang me, I wish I was single again.
She got the rope, oh, then, oh, then,
She got the rope, oh, thenó
She got the rope,
And she greased it with soap,
And I wish I was single again.
[157]
