Devilish Mary
Skillet Lickers

When I was young and foolish,
I thought I never would marry
Fell in love with a pretty little gal
And sure enough we married.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.

We both were young and foolish
She was just a girly
We both agreed upon one word
Our wedding day was Thursday.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.

We hadn't been married but about six weeks
She got mean as a devil
Every time I look cross-eyed
She knocked me dead with a shovel.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.

We hadn't been married but about six months
We both agreed to be parted
So she up with her little duds and
Down the road she started.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.

She filled my back with ol' soap suds,
Filled my back with stitches,
She let me know right at the start
She's gonna where my britches.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.

If I marry another time,
Gonna be for love and not riches
Marry a little gal about two feet high
She can't wear my britches.

A long come-a-ding-come-a-daree
The prettiest little gal that ever I saw
Her name was Devilish Mary.
