The Girl Who Wore the Waterfall
Her age it was but seventeen,
A figure fair and tall,
She was a handsome figure And she wore a waterfall.
'Twas at a picnic party,
I met her at the dance,
I quickly introduced myself,
We had a pleasant chat,
I walked her home that night,
I swore we'd never part,
And when she asked me to come in,
I swore she'd won my heart.
While sitting there I thought that I Heard footsteps in the hall;
"It is my husband," said the girl That wore the waterfall.
A great big fellow six feet tall Came stalking in the room,
And as he saw me sitting there At once began to fume,
Before that I could say a word This fellow at me flew,
While the maiden helt me down He beat me black and blue.
When I got up I found I'd lost Watch, money, chain add all,
Andnever since went near a girl That wore a waterfall.
Learned from his grandmother.
