It'll Aggravate Your Soul

 

Come all of you people take warning from me

Dont take no girl to Tennessee

For if you get married and dont agree

It'll aggravate your soul

 

We left Maces early in the night

Expect to get married before daylight

So many things happened to hinder our flight

It aggravated my soul

 

Arrived at Bristol at eleven o'clock

The parson was there right on the spot

We found the license had been forgot

It aggravated my soul

 

We went for the license in an automobile

Run so fast you couldn't see the wheels

No one can explain how bad I did feel

It aggravated my soul

 

We stayed all night at the Bristol Hotel

Just to make folks think we were swell

Next morning they put us in the Bristol Herald

It aggravated my soul

 

And when the new styles was comin around

She began to get ready to go to town

You know right then she's millerin to stop down ?

It'll aggravate your soul

 

She wants a new coat and a hobbled skirt

And you cant get in before the young uns entered

And when she gets out oh how she will flirt

It'll aggravate your soul

 

And when the persons gather round your head

You'll think of what your dear old mother said

With the pain in your back and heart and head

It'll aggravate your soul

 

Now young men take warning from me

Dont take no girl to Tennessee

For if you get married and dont agree

It'll aggravate your soul
