Track 9: MORE PRETTY GIRLS THAN ONE

Another fine old cowboy lyric, with "floating" type verses. Learned from Library of Congress record AAFS L 28, as sung by Wayne Dinwidddie at Visalia, California.

There's more pretty girls than one 
There's more pretty girls than one 
In every town I've rambled around 
There's more pretty girls than one.

My mama told me last night 
She gave me good advice
Says, "Quit your ramblin' around Pretty Boy 
And marry you a lovin' wife."

Look down that lonesome road 
Before you travel on
I'll sing to you this lonesome song 
To hear before you're gone.

There's more pretty girls than one 
There's more pretty girls than one 
In every town I've rambled around 
There's more pretty girls than one.

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

There's more pretty girls than one 
There's more pretty girls than one 
In every town I've rambled around 
There's more pretty girls than one.
