There was a popular Johnny Horton record that had a song on the flipside called "Billy Boy" I THINK! It started out
"Pa married Miss Marcie when I was just four.
Ma died when I was just two.
She saw that us young'uns got plenty to eat
And cared for us like mammie's do.
Billy Boy, Billy Boy, sit on the doorstep.
Do you know what went on at the still?
_______________ is dying ________________ is dead
And they say Pa done shot Uncle Will."
(Please give me some leeway. It has been at least 35 years since I've heard it.)
