Love Hurts

SUSIE LEE DONE FELL IN LOVE,
SHE PLANNED TO MARRY JOE.
SHE WAS SO HAPPY 'BOUT IT ALL,
SHE TOLD HER PAPPY SO.
PAPPY TOLD HER, "SUSIE GAL,
YOU'LL HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER.
I'D JUST AS SOON YA MA DON'T KNOW,
BUT JOE IS YA HALF BROTHER."
SO SUSIE PUT ASIDE HER JOE
AND PLANNED TO MARRY WILL.
BUT AFTER TELLING PAPPY THIS,
HE SAID, "THERE'S TROUBLE STILL.
YOU CAN'T MARRY WILL, MY GAL,
AND PLEASE DON'T TELL YA MOTHER.
BUT WILL AND JOE, AND SEVERAL MO'

BUT MAMA KNEW AND SAID, "MY CHILD,

MARRY WILL OR MARRY JOE;
