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
Fly all around my pretty little pink,
Fly all around my baby,
You slighted me and broke my heart,
You almost drove me crazy.
When I was a little boy,
A-playin' in the ditches,
Now I am a big grown man,
Wearing Pappy's britches.
Yonder stands my own true love,
You reckon how I know,
Tell her by her under clothes,
Hangin' down so low.
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.
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.
