Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Subject: Lyr Add: PRETTY LITTLE PINK (from Doc Watson)
Here's a version from my friend Doc Watson with some great lyrics:

Lry add: PRETTY LITTLE PINK
Doc Watson with Clarence Ashley

CHORUS:
Fly all around my pretty little pink,
Fly all around my baby,
You slighted me and broke my heart,
You almost drove me crazy.

VERSE 1:
When I was a little boy,
A-playin' in the ditches,
Now I am a big grown man,
Wearing Pappy's britches.

VERSE 2:
Yonder stands my own true love,
You reckon how I know,
Tell her by her under clothes,
Hangin' down so low.

VERSE 3:
Every time that I go home,
I do the best to please her,
The more I try the worse she gets,
Durned if I don't leave her.

VERSE 4:
Yonder stands a pretty little girl,
She's all dressed in red,
I looked down and I seen her feet,
And I wished my wife was dead.
