CHAWING CHEWING GUM (Author Unknown - Late 19th Century) The Carter Family - 1928 Also recorded by: Stan Ransom; New Lost City Ramblers. Mama sent me to the spring She told me not to stay I fell in love with a pretty little girl And could not get away Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum First she give me peaches Then she give me pears Next she give me fifty cents Kissed me on the stairs Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Mommy don't 'low me to whistle Pappy don't 'low me to sing They don't 'low me to marry I'll marry just the same Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I wouldn't marry a preacher I'll tell you the reason why He hollers when he preaches Makes the people cry Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I wouldn't have a lawyer I'll tell you the reason why Every time he opens his mouth He tells a great big lie Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I wouldn't have a doctor I'll tell you the reason why He rides all over the country And makes the people die Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I wouldn't have a farmer I'll tell you the reason why Because he has so plenty to eat 'Specially pumpkin pie Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I took my girl to a dance last night All the folks was there She took out her chewing gum And left it on a chair A nice young man came up and sat And asked my girl to dance When he tried to rise, he couldn't budge He was stuck fast by his pants Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I took my girl to church last night How do you reckon she done? She walked right up in the preacher's face And chawed her chewing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum I took my girl for a buggy ride And to watch the setting sun Just as I bent to kiss her She chawed her chewing gum I turned the buggy right around And straightaway home we come I might have been a married man If it hadn't been for gum! Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum
