Rake and Rambling Boy cho: Well I'm a rake and a rambling boy There's many a city I did enjoy. And now I've married me a pretty little wife And I love her dearer than I love my life. Pretty little wife, I love you well I love you more than tongue can tell. You treated me nice, both night and day And sent me to rob on the broad highway. Oh she was pretty, both neat and gay Caused me to rob on the broad highway. Oh yes, I robbed it, I do declare And I got myself ten thousand there Oh when I die, don't bury me at all Place my bones in alcohol. And at my feet, place a snow white dove To tell the world I died of love. Recorded by Baez DT #423 Laws L12 RG
