I don't remember the exact title of the song. The lyrics include the following line: "I went to see my gal and she's washing in the tub, the more I ask her to marry me, the harder she did scrub." It's from an early 70's recording, I believe, Jim also released "Grandma's Feather Bed" on that LP - a song later made famous by John Denver. Do anybody remember it?

Poor Miss Liza Jane

When I go a-courtin'
I'll go on the train
When I go to marry
I'll marry Liza Jane

Hey, miss Liza, po' little gal
Hey, miss Liza Jane
Hey, miss Liza, po' little gal
She died upon the train

The hardest work I ever did
Was a-brakin' on a train
The easiest work I ever did
Was a-huggin' Liza Jane

When I went to see her
She wrung her hands and cried
She swore I was the ugliest thing
That ever lived or died

I ask little Liza to marry me
What do you reckon she said
Said she would not marry me
If everybody else was dead

You can climb the cherry tree
And I will climb the rose
How I love that pretty little gal
God almighty knows

I went to see miss Liza
She's a-bendin' o'er the tub
And the more I asked her to marry me
The harder she did scrub

Is this the Lisa Jane song as sung by Tom Watson in the 1920's? Jim may have got inspired by this, but I think it's a different song.

See if you can reach him through his booking site. Other than the post I can't locate the song title (and you're right, that ain't it).
