P. and A. I asked for credit at the store, The man he said OK He know'd darn well I had a job On.. I said hello to my best friend But nothing would he say. I seen right then he'd tried to get On... I asked a man if he would help Me stack a little hay, He said, "You go and hang yourself On... Farewell to hoeing in the corn Goodbye cutting hay I'd rather go and make my dough On... Don't plant no corn, don't raise no crop I tell you, it don't pay Come join our happy, merry crew On... When I die just dig a hole Way down beneath the clay. And tell them all I killed myself On W. P. and A. From Traditional American Folk Songs, Anne and Frank Warner Collected from Frank Proffitt RG oct96
