I Had a Wife

I Had a Wife

I had a wife and got no good of her
Tell you how I easy got rid of her
Took an axe and chopped the head of her
Early in the morning.

Seeing how there was no evidence
For the sheriff or his reverence
They called it an act of providence
Early in the morning.

So if you've a wife and get no good of her
Here is how to easy get rid of her
Take her out and chop the head of her
Early in the morning.
