THE DROVER'S WIFE Tex Morton A drover's wife I chanced to meet A friend of days gone by I asked about her husband Bill She softly started to cry She held her baby to her breast Slowly raised her head Her big sad eyes looked into mine Broken-hearted she said Six years ago I married Bill Though so poor were we I loved him as I loved my life Bill, I know he loved me But now he's got six hundred pounds I know that he wants to part For Bill's in love with someone else It's nearly breaking my heart Bill, Bill, stick to me Bill Money don't alter the case Don't leave a fond and loving wife For the sake of a new pretty face Bill, Bill, I love you Before you got rich like you did I love you still, so Bill, dear Bill Come stick to me and the kids I stuck by you when times were hard When we had not a cent I even pawned my wedding ring To pay our bit of rent She'll love you while your money lasts I swear by God above I don't want your money, Bill I only want your love Bill, Bill, stick to me Bill Money don't alter the case Don't leave a fond and loving wife For the sake of a new pretty face Bill, Bill, I loved you Before you came into your quids I love you still, so Bill, dear Bill Come stick to me and the kids (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen - December 2003)
