Got No Luck With the Women (Anne Bredon) I had a gal in old St. Paul Fare thee well, Molly Kay Didn't give me no lovin' at all Boys I'm on my way, Yes I'm a-goin' away. cho: Got no luck with the women Got no luck at all, Just when I get hold of one I'm bound to take a fall. I had a gal in Louisville, Fare thee well, Sally Ann She got drunk on liver pills Died with the bottle in her hand, Boys She died with the bottle in her hand. I had a gal in Baltimore Fare the well, Laurie Lee Danced around till her feet got sore Down at the bottom of the sea, yes, Down at the bottom of the sea. I had a gal in Little Rock Fare thee well, Sarah Jane Put my old guitar in hock It'll never be the same, boys, It'll never be the same. I had a gal in New Orleans, Fare thee well, Jennie Jo She fed me on kidney beans, Boys I had to go, yes, I really had to go. I got a gal in Memphis Town How d'ya do, Mary Sue? Got her a rifle and she shot me down, Honey I'll be true to you, I mean it, Honey I'll be true to you. final cho: Got no luck with the women Got no luck at all, When she hot ahold of me She took me for a fall. Straight down to the parson's hall. AB
