THE NIGHTINGALE

EARLY ONE MORNING, ONE MORNING IN SPRING,
TO HEAR THE BIRDS WHISTLE, THE NIGHTINGGALE SING, I MET A FAIR
MAIDEN WHO SWEETLY DID SING, "I'M GOING TO BE MARRIED NEXT MONDAY
MORNING. HOW OLD ARE YOU MY FAIR YOUNG MAID, HERE IN THIS VALLEY,
THIS VALLEY SO GREEN? HOW OLD ARE YOU MY FAIR YOUNG MAID? "I'M
GOING TO BE 16 NEXT MONDAY MORNING." WELL 16 YEARS OLD, THAT'S TOO
YOUNG FOR TO MARRY, SO TAKE MY ADVICE, FIVE YEARS LONGER TO TARRY,
FOR MARRAIGE BRINGS SORROWS AND TROUBLES BEGIN, SO PUT OFF YOUR
WEDDING FOR MONDAY MORNING. YOU TALK LIKE A MADMAN, A MAN WITH NO
SKILL. FIVE YEARS I HAVE WAITED AGAINST MY OWN WILL, AND NOW I'M
DETERMINED TO HAVE MY OWN WAY, AND I'M GOING TO BE MARRIED NEXT
MONDAY MORNING. NEXT MONDAY MORNING, THE BELLS THEY WILL RING,
MY TRUE LOVE WILL BUY ME A GAY GOLDEN RING. ALSO HE'LL BUY ME A
PRETTY NEW GOWN, TO WEAR AT MY WEDDING NEXT MONDAY MORNING.
NEXT MONDAY NIGHT WHEN I GO TO MY BED, I'LL TURN 'ROUND TO THE MAN
THAT I'VE WED. AROUND HIS MIDDLE MY ARMS THEY WILL FLING, OH I
WISH TO MY SOUL IT WAS MONDAY MORNING.

THERE WAS A MAN IN THE APPALACHIAN MOUNTAINS WHO WAS A SHIFTLESS,
NO COUNT BUM. AFTER BUMMING AROUND FOR A GOOD WHILE, HE DIED.
AS HE WAS GOING UP, ST. PETER SAW HIM COMING AND KNOWING THE
TYPE OF MAN HE WAS, HE TOLD HIM THAT HE WAS SORRY BUT HE JUST
COULDN'T LET HIM IN. WELL, HE THEN WENT DOWN ON HIS WAY TO
HELL. THE DEVIL SAW HIM COMING. "OH, NO," HE SAID, "IT'S
NOT AS IF WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGHT LIKE HIM. I JUST CAN'T
TAKE ANY MORE." SO WHEN THE OLD MAN GOT TO THE GATES OF
HELL, THE DEVIL WAS WAITING. HE GAVE THE MAN A PIECE OF
COAL AND SAID, "GO START A HELL OF YOUR OWN. AND THAT'S
THE ORIGIN OF ALL THOSE LIGHTS IN THE MOUNTAINS THAT YOU
CAN'T EXPLAIN.
