Reel 333, Item 9
When the Dew Flies over the Green Valley
I married me a wife and I took her home,
And I wished to the Lord that I'd left her alone. Refrain:
When the dew flies over the green valley,
When the dew flies over the green valley.
Come in from work, come in from the plow,
It's, Dear little wife, is dinner ready now? Refrain.
Get out of here, you dirty whelp,
If you want any dinner, you'll cook it yourself. Refrain.
I picked up my hat and I went to the bam And I cut me a hickory as long as my arm.
I trimmed it up and came walking back,
And around her little back it went whickety whack. Refrain.
