Lyr. Add: Molly Dee

I got a gal in Tennessee
Sweetest little gal that you ever did see.
Works all day in a cotton mill.
Makes her gin in a bathtub still

Here we go, 'round again.
Singing a song about Molly Dee.
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me.

My true love's in Memphis town.
Pretty little thing named Sally Brown.
Travels around on a river boat.
Shares her room with a billy goat.

Spending my money, gonna drink it away.
I'll start saving on another day.
Wasting my time in the Silver Dollar.
Pinch them girls just to hear them holler.

Kingston Trio. Seems to have been gathered from the lyrics of old fiddle tunes.
