DT Lyrics:

The children's and western threads reminded me of this song, which I don't see in the database:


It is men's and women;s voices, alternating verses:

When you comin' to see me, see me, see me
When you comin' to see me, my dear old mountain boy.

Guess I'll come next Friday, Friday, Friday,
Guess I'll come next Friday, That is, if the weather be good.
[Last phrase repeats at end of each verse, for men and women, until the end.]
When we gonna get married, married ,married ...

We can get married next Sunday, Sunday, Sunday ...

How we gonna get to the weddin', weddin', weddin' ...

I guess we'll go in the ox-cart, ox-cart, ox-cart ...

Why can't we go in the buggy, buggy, buggy ...

'Cause the ox won't pull no buggy, buggy, buggy ...

Who you gonna bring to the weddin' ...

I guess I'll bring my children, children, children ...

I didn't know you had no children, children, children ...

Oh yes, I have 5 children, children, children
(Oh yes, I have 5 children, and 6 if the weather be good.)

There ain't a gonna be no weddin', weddin', weddin'
There ain't a gonna be no weddin', not even if the weather be good.

and thanks to Dale in Florida who taught this to me more years ago than I can believe.

That's a good one, MAG. I know it as Buffalo Boy, which I couldn't find in the database, either. I'll make sure the lyrics get harvested.
