"The Young Man Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn"


       
 
1.
I'll sing you a song and it's not very long.
It's about a young man who wouldn't hoe corn.
He reason why, I can't tell.
The young man was always well.
 
 
2.
He planted his corn in the month of June
And in July it was knee high;
First of September came a big frost
And all this young man's corn was lost.
 
  3.

He went to the fence and there peeped in,
The weeds and the grass came up to his chin;
The weeds and the grass grew so high,
They caused this young man for to sigh.

 
  4.

So he went down to his neighbor's door,
Where he had often been before:
"Pretty little miss, will you marry me?
Pretty little miss, what do you say?"

 
  5.

"Here you are, a-wanting for to wed
And cannot make your own corn bread!
Single I am, single I'll remain,
A lazy man I'll not maintain."
