I have Sheila Kay Adams singing this song with banjo on MY DEAREST DEAR, and I heard it at a jam the other evening as a fiddle tune, and would like to have the lyrics. I know it has some of the "Mockingbird" verses in it. Thanks

Well, it's not in the Digital Tradition. I have it on a Bruce Molsky tape. If I get a chance when I get home tonight I'll transcribe the words and post them.

Aloha,
Mark

Here's another verse:

Say lil' darlin' will you marry me
We'll get married by the old oak tree
Say darlin say
We'll get married by the old oak tree
Build a house there for you and me
Say darlin say.

Bill

Tommy Jarrell sings this song on THE LEGACY OF TOMMY JARRELL, VOL. II, THE RAINBOW SIGN. I don't have this, so if anybody does, I'd love to have his lyrics to "SAY, DARLIN', SAY". Here is Sheila Kay Adam's version:

SAY, DARLIN', SAY
(from Sheila Kay Adams)

Say little darlin, don't say a word,
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockin' bird.
Say, darlin' say.

And if that mockin' bird don't sing,
Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns to brass,
Daddy's gonna buy you a lookin' glass.

And if that lookin' glass gets broke,
Daddy's gonna buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat don't buck,
Daddy's gonna buy a little Chevrolet truck.

Say, little darlin', don't say a word,
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockin' bird.

And if that mockin' bird don't sing,
Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

Say little darlin, if you was mine,
You wouldn't do nothin' but starch and iron.

Starch and iron would be your trade,
And I'd get drunk and lay in the shade.
-------------

Thanks for all of your help.
