The boys in town are all my kin and my father is the pa 
   Am          Em                    G         Em 
If this does continue I shall die a single miss 
   Am             G                       C       Em     Am 
I will go    to mother and complain to her of this

Am                                                      G   Am 
Oh daughter, haven't I taught you to forgive and to forget 
                 Em          G                       Em 
Even if all    this is true still you needn't fret

He's not the one     who sired you, so marry who you will
