An[G] old man came courting me,hey ding[D] dorum da'
An[G] old man came courting me,mr being[D] young,
An[G] old man came[C] courting me[G] saying would you[D] marry me,
[G]Maids when you[C]r young never[D7] wed an old [G]man.
[Chorus]
Because he's got no falurm,fal-ding durum da
He'got no falurum fal-did di daa
He's got no falurum he' lost his ding durum
Maids when your young never wed an old man.
[2]
When we went to church hey ding duruhm daa,
When we went to church,me being young
When we went to church,he left me in the lurch
Maids when your young never wed an old man.
[3]
When we went to bed hey ding dorum da,
When we went to bed me being young
When we went to bed,he lay like de was dead,
Maids when your woung never wed an old man.
 
So I threw me leg over him, hey ding dorum da
just to oblige him, me being young
I flung me leg over him damned nearly smothered him     
Maids when you're young never wed an old man.
 
(5)
When he went to sleep, hey ding dorum da
when he was half asleep, me being young
when he went to sleep out of the night I creep
into the arms of a handsome young man.
 
(6)
And I found his falurum, fal-diddle dei durum
I found his falurum, fal-diddle do dei
I found his falurum, he got my ding durum, now
Maids when you're young never wed an old man
