John Adair

John Adair

Father, oh dear father I hope that you won't care,
I want to wed my lover----my lover John Adair.

Daughter, oh dear daughter, you're gonna have to find another,
You cannot marry John Adair for he is your half brother.

(She goes out and gets another boyfriend and goes back to daddy (spoken)) above---Jimmy Brown  (same result)

Mother, oh dear mother, Lord I am undone,
Every boy I love turns out to be my father's son.

Daughter, oh dear daughter--go ahead and make your vow,
It aint no sin 'cause you aint no kin to your daddy anyhow!! (one of the
great lines !!!)
