See the Rider

See see rider, see what you have done. Law’d, Law’d, Law’d, made me love you, now your gal has come. You made me love you, now your gal has come.
I’m goin away baby, I won’t be back ‘til fall. Law’d, Law’d, Law’d,
goin away baby, I won’t be back ‘til fall. If I find me a good man, won’t be back at all.
I’m gonna buy me a pistol, just as long as I am tall. Law’d, Law’d, Law’d, shoot my man, and catch a cannonball. If he won’t have me, he won’t have no gal at all.
See see rider, where did you stay last night? Law’d, Law’d, Law’d, your shoes ain’t buttoned, your clothes don’t fit you right. You didn’t come home ‘til the sun was shining bright....
