208 AMERICAN BALLADS AND SONGS
When I was single, my money did jingle, I wish I was single again, again, And I wish I was single again.
I married me a wife, 0 then, 0 then,
I married me a wife, 0 then,
I married me a wife, she's the plague of my life,
And I wished I was single again, again,
And I wished I was single again.
My wife she died, 0 then, 0 then, My wife she died, 0 then, My wife she died, and then I cried, To think I was single again, again, To think I was single again.
I married another, the devil's grandmother,
I wished I was single again,
For when I was single, my money did jingle,
I wish I was single again, again,
I wish I was single again.

I'LL NOT MARRY AT ALL
I'm determined to live an old maid, I'll take my stool and sit in the shade, And I'll not marry at all, at all, And I'll not marry at all.
