I'd like to get the text of Lord Thomas (Child #73) as sung by MANCE LIPSCOMB (in Mance Lipscomb: Texas Songster, Vol. 2 - You Got to Reap What Sow). Thanks. R

Now Thomas he wore some mighty fine clothes
And the waiter did dress in green, well the waiter did dress in green
And every city that they passed through
They taken him, taken him to be some queen [!]

Now Thomas he walked along the road
He did not walk so fur, he did not walk so fur
He turned back and say to the lady's mother
I want, I want to marry your girl.

The lady like him (?) for she said too
My daughter is too young, my daughter is too young
To be misleading, to be misleading
[can't understand the next line]

Oh let her be young, oh let her be old
I've come to ask you for one kind favor
Please, please choose me for your son.

Thanks a lot. The only two words I can get more are: "I say": To be misleading, to be misleading / I say (...?).
