Ballads and Songs
B
Obtained from Mrs. Mary Tucker, Varnell, Georgia, October n, 1930.
1.1 will buy you a paper of pins, If this is the way your love begins, If you will marry me, mis-sie, If you will marry me.
2. Well, I don't want your paper of pins, For that's not the way my love begins, And I won't marry you, kind sir, And I won't marry you.
3. Well, I will buy you a dress of black And stretch it all around a fodder stack, If you will marry me, mis-sie,
If you will marry me.
4. Well, I don't want your dress of black Stretched all around a fodder stack And I won't marry you, kind sir, And I won't marry you.
5.1 will buy you a petticoat of red
Stitched all around with golden thread, If you will marry me, mis-sie, If you will marry me.
6. Well, I don't want your petticoat of red Stitched all around with golden thread And I won't marry you, kind sir, And I won't marry you.
7.1 will give you these keys of my heart That me and you will never part, If you will marry me, mis-sie, If you will marry me.
8. Well, I don't want the keys of your heart That me and you will never part, And I won't marry you, kind sir, And I won't marry you.
