"Well I tried and I tried and I tried in vain, But I don't believe I raised one grain." Well he went down town to his neighbor's door Where he had often been before Sayin "Pretty little miss will you marry me, Little miss what do you say?" "Why do you come for me to wed? You can't even make your own cornbread Single I am and will remain. A lazy man I won't maintain." He turned his back and walked away Sayin "Little miss you'll rue the day. You'll rue the day that you were born Givin me the devil cause I wouldn't hoe corn."
