There is a livelier version on the Unholy Modal Rounders' _Have Moicy_, including such charming stanzas as

My gal's got class and a temper too.
She can make a monkey out of all of you.

And if any you folks try and misbehave,
I'll haunt your asses to an early grave.

Here's my transcription from the YouTube recording, with discographical information from Allmusic.com:


DON'T MONKEY 'ROUND MY WIDDER
Carl Davis

1. My fever's runnin' high an' I'm suff'rin' with a cold,
An' I'll soon be a-walkin' on the streets of gold,
An' I'll ask you, boy,
Not to monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

2. If you monkey round my widder, I'm a-tellin' you the fact:
My big white ghost'll come a-sneakin' back,
An' I'll haint you, boy,
If you monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

3. My honey's told me over and over again:
There'll be no more sparkin' after I check in.
I'll ask you, boy, (oh, yeah?)
Don't you monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

4. If you monkey round my widder, I'm a tellin' you true:
Some dark night I'll scare the hell out o' you.
I'll haint you, boy,
If you monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

5. Oh, her cookin' is good an' her lovin' is fine,
But when I leave this world, she'll still be mine.
Now I'll ask you, boy,
Not to monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

REPEAT 2

6. I'll soon be leavin' this world of sin,
One purty woman with a lot o' you men,
An' I'll tell you, boy,
Don't you monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

REPEAT 2

I'll haint you, boy,
If you monkey round my widder when I'm gone.

[As sung by Chet Atkins and Doc Watson on "Reflections" (1980) and on Chet Atkins' album "The RCA Years, 1947-1981" (1992). "Reflections" has been reissued, combined with the Chet Atkins/Merle Travis album "Atkins-Travis Traveling Show", as 2-LPs-turned-into-1-CD (2008).]
