    The Young Man Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn

    [Verse 1]
    I'll sing you a song and its not very long
    It's about a young man who wouldn't hoe corn
    Strange to say I cannot tell
    This young man was always well

    [Verse 2]
    He planted his corn in the month of June
    By July it was knee-high
    First of September, come a big frost
    And all this young man's corn was lost

    [Verse 3]
    He went to the fence and there peeped in
    The weeds and grass come up to his chin
    The weeds and grass, they come so high
    Because this young man poor decide

    [Verse 4]
    He went down to his neighbor's door
    Where he'd often been before
    Saying, "Pretty little miss, will you marry me?
    Pretty little miss, what do you say?"

    [Verse 5]
    "Well, here you are, one for to wed
    And you cannot make your own corn bread
    Single I am, single I'll remain
    A lazy man I'll not maintain"

    [Verse 6]
    Well, he went down to that pretty little litter
    And I hope by heck that he don't gitter
    She gave him a beaten, sure as your born
    All because he didn't hoe corn
