Aunt Sal's Song

A gentleman came to our house, he would not tell his name,
I knew he came a-courting, although he were ashamed
Oh, although he were ashamed.

He moved his chair up by my side, his fancy pleased me well,
I thought the spirit moved him, some handsome tale to tell,
Oh, some handsome tale to tell!

But there he sat the live-long night and never a word did says
With many a sigh and bitter groan, he oft-times wished for day!Oh, he.etc.

The chickens they began to crow, and daylight did appear,
“How do ye do, good morning, sir, I’m glad to see you here,
Oh, I’m glad to see you here!”

He was weary all the live-long night, he was weary of his life,
“If this is what y’call courtin’, boys, I’ll never take a wife,
Oh, I’ll never take a wife!

And when he goes in company, the girls all laugh for sport,
Saying, “Yonder goes that ding-dang fool, that don’t know how to court,
Oh, that don’t know how to court!
