Schwa Lyrics

Pretty Polly

Lyricist: Traditional
Vocalist: Cliff Starbuck
Polly, pretty Polly, would you think me unkind
Polly, pretty Polly, would you think me unkind
if I sat down beside you and told you my mind

My mind is to marry and never to part
My mind is to marry and never to part,
The first time I saw you it wounded my heart

Polly, pretty Polly, come and go along with me
Polly, pretty Polly, come and go along with me
Before we get married some pleasure to seek

He led her over mountains and valleys so deep
He led her over mountains and valleys so deep
Polly misjudged him and she began to weep

Sayin' "Willie, Oh Willie, I'm afraid of your ways"
Willie, Oh Willie, I'm afraid of your ways"
The way you've been ramblin' you'd lead me astray

He said "Polly, pretty Polly, your guess is about right.
Polly, pretty Polly, your guess is about right,
I dug on your grave the best part of last night

She followed him a little farther and what did she find
She followed him a little farther and what did she find
A new dug grave and a spade lyin' by

She knealt down before him and begged for her life
She knealt down before him and begged for her life
Sayin' "Let me be a single girl if I can't be your wife"

"Polly, pretty polly that never could be.
Polly, pretty polly that never could be,
Your pink reputation's been trouble to me

He opened up her bosom as white as any snow
He opened up her bosom as white as any snow
He stabbed her through the heart and the blood began to flow

He went to the jailhouse and what did he say
He went to the jailhouse and what did he say
I've killed pretty Polly and I'm tryin' to get away
