American Ballads and Folk Songs
He came one night to see me
And stayed so awfully late
I really thought the blockhead
Would never leave the gate.
He talked about the weather,
And tried so hard to please,
But when he saw he couldn't
He got down on his knees j
He begged and pleaded with me
Till his eyes began to fill,
He wishes me to marry him
But I hardly think I will. {Chorus.)
He said that if I'd marry him He'd give me every limit, But if I did not marry him He'd die this very minute. Now in the Holy Bible It says, "Thou shalt not kill." I thought the matter over, And I guess I'll marry Bill.
Chorus:
Oh, I guess I'll marry Bill, I guess I'll marry Bill} I thought the matter over, And I guess I'll marry Bill.
