Maine Lumberjacks            59
5     To the woods he will go, With his heart so full of woe,
And he wa-a-anders from tree after tree, Till six months have gone and past, he forgets it all at last: "It is time I should have another spree, It is time I should have another spree."
6     When old age does him alarm, He will settle on a farm,
And he'll find some young girl to be his wife;
But to his sad mistake, she false love to him will make, And kind death will cut the tender threads of life, And kind death will cut the tender threads of life.
