I'M TOO YOUNG TO MARRY Jimmie Driftwood - 1958 I had a gal from Arkansas Who had a lot of pride And when I met her Pa and Ma Oh goodness, how alike A purty gal from Tennessee Sat down upon my lap And when she started kissing me I hollered fer my Pap Chaw my backer, chaw my gum Drink my whisky, drink my rum Shoot my mouth and shoot my gun But I'm too young to marry (Mouth Harp) I wouldn't have a married girl I'll tell you the reason why I'd be afraid she'd take a whirl With some good lookin' guy And I wouldn't have a single gal It's very plain to see I cannot find a single gal Who hankers after me Chaw my backer, chaw my gum Drink my whisky, drink my rum Shoot my mouth and shoot my gun But I'm too young to marry (Mouth Harp) I found a gal with lots of buzz And very much alive And when I asked how old she was She answered, "Ninety-five" I told her I would be her boss And started in her door She said, "Get out, you crazy hoss You're only ninety-four" Chaw my backer, chaw my gum Drink my whisky, drink my rum Shoot my mouth and shoot my gun But I'm too young to marry (Mouth Harp) Some day I'm gonna settle down With some sweet Katie dear And teach my boys to run around Just like their Daddy did Chaw my backer, chaw my gum Drink my whisky, drink my rum Shoot my mouth and shoot my gun But I'm too young to marry (Mouth Harp) (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - November 2005)
