The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

More Pretty Girls Than One [core]

There's more pretty 5 girls than 1 one
There's 4 more pretty girls than 1 one
For 4 every town I 1 rambled around
There's more pretty 5 girls than 1 one

My mama told me last night
She gave me good advice
Better stop your rambling 'round, pretty boy
And marry you a loving wife

Look down that lonesome road
Hang down your little head and cry
For thinking of those pretty little girls
And hoping I never will die

Look down that lonesome road
Before you travel on
I'm leaving you this lonesome song
To sing when I am gone
