I KNEW IT.
Copyright, 1891, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Loren Bragden.

A lass that I loved was the belle of the town,
I knew it, I knew it;
Such line and such eyes there could scarcely be found,
I knew it, I knew it.
We loved as two lovers had ne'er loved before:
She pledged me her faith and her constancy swore;
She said she would live only me to adore,
I knew it, I knew it

We were married and lived as two young lovers do,
I knew it, I knew it;
With nothing to live on but the breath we each drew,
I knew it, I knew it.
She said she would live only me to adore,
But she never once mentioned my mother in-law;
She said that the ranch she would rule evermore,
I knew it, I knew it.

Now a drummer I was and I travelled around,
All knew it, all knew it;
I spent all my time taking in every town,
All knew it, all knew it.
For my long absence from her I was not to blame,
Excuses I made that she thought rather lame,
But in each town I had a girl just the same,
I knew it, she knew it.

One day I came home from a trip in the West,
None knew it, none knew it;
I went to my home, for I needed some rest,
I knew it, I knew a.
When I entered the house, not a thing to be found,
My wife and her mother with my money gone,
Some other drummer had been doing our town,
I knew it, she knew it.
