spoken:
at the same time i met a very nice girl,
what we call a nice girl,
a girl who went to school,
but she had to listen to me.

this girl and I became engaged,
her name was bertha mae,
i'd like to tell all about it,
if i may - this is why i'm lonesome.

music:
i once had a woman
man, her name was bertha mae
well, i once had a woman
but her name was bertha mae

little girl who paid her debt
that we all have got to pay

she was my school mate
she came to be my best friend
well, she was my school mate
bertha mae came to be my best friend

oh how i would
i could see her smiling face again

i never missed my bertha
til you have taken her from my door

there was a crowd of people
standing around the burial ground
thousands of crowd of people
standing around the burial ground
come to see my little bertha
when the boys let her body down
