Reel 333, Item 13
When I went over London Bridge,
I met with Devilish Mary;
I hadn't said more'n a word or two;
We married the very next Thursday.
Hadn't been married more'n a week or two,
And she begin to raise the devil,
And ever' time I said one word,
She'd crack my head with a shovel.
One day I said to the old gal, It's best for us to be parted She didn't say one single word,
Only bundled up her duds and started.
If ever I marry in this wode world It'll not be for love nor riches;
I'll marry a girl that's six foot tall But she can't put on the britches.
