Reel 346, Item 8
I Married Me a Wife
I married me a wife in the month of May,
Risty rasty now now now,
And I hauled her home on a load of hay,
Risty rasty now now now.
(Refrain lines as above in all stanzas.)
She combed her head but once-t a year,
And every rake she brought a tear.
She swept the floor but once-t a year,
Because the brooms they were so dear.
For a churn she used my boot,
And for a dash she used her foot.
The butter it was a grisly gray,
And it took legs and walked away.
(That's all I know; there's some more.)
