Got No Luck With the Women
(Anne Bredon)

I had a gal in old St. Paul
   Fare thee well, Molly Kay
Didn't give me no lovin' at all
   Boys I'm on my way, Yes
   I'm a-goin' away.

cho: Got no luck with the women
     Got no luck at all,
     Just when I get hold of one
     I'm bound to take a fall.

I had a gal in Louisville,
   Fare thee well, Sally Ann
She got drunk on liver pills
   Died with the bottle in her hand, Boys
   She died with the bottle in her hand.
I had a gal in Baltimore
   Fare the well, Laurie Lee
Danced around till her feet got sore
   Down at the bottom of the sea, yes,
   Down at the bottom of the sea.

I had a gal in Little Rock
   Fare thee well, Sarah Jane
Put my old guitar in hock
   It'll never be the same, boys,
   It'll never be the same.

I had a gal in New Orleans,
   Fare thee well, Jennie Jo
She fed me on kidney beans,
   Boys I had to go, yes,
   I really had to go.

I got a gal in Memphis Town
   How d'ya do, Mary Sue?
Got her a rifle and she shot me down,
   Honey I'll be true to you, I mean it,
   Honey I'll be true to you.

final cho:
     Got no luck with the women
     Got no luck at all,
     When she hot ahold of me
     She took me for a fall.
     Straight down to the parson's hall.
