Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
My nan used to sing this to me when I was small, I remember it being

She sat in her hammock and played her guitar
He sat down beside her and smoked a cigar
She said that she loved him and oh how she sighed
He said that he loved her but oh how he lied
They were to be married but she upped and died
He went to her funeral but just for the ride
He sat on her tombstone and laughed 'til he cried
The tombstone fell over and thats how he died
The vicar was passing and popped him inside
She went to heaven and flip flap she flied
He went to t'other place and frizzled and fried
The moral of this story is never tell lies....

I still sing it now with my guitar, when I'm in the hammock in the garden hee hee but it's sooooo darn long!!!
