Ah, Bart!

The thing has yet to stride forth entire from the swirling mists of memory, but your line from the chorus, "An when I die, I ain't a-gonna cry, cause I got me a purty woman's love." did bring forth this scrappet of verse:

"A dollar's worth a'beans,

A new pair a'jeans

And a woman to cook and warsh...and sing;

And when I die..."

I seem to recall a rendition from a children's record years ago, but I'll have to check with my little brother. He's the "musical moke" of the family and will remember this ditty if anyone I know can.

Meanwhile, perhaps our own Gene Graham, living treasure and country-folk maven extraordinaire might have a line on where this tune originated.
