A Cane And A High Starched Collar Lyrics

by Elvis Presley

Cowboy, cowboy, marry me, I'll bake you a cherry pie
Well, thank you very kindly man but I'm too young to die
Hi-lo-do-si-dosy, stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night, I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

Cowboy if you marry me I'll be your darling Jenny
Now why should I drink from just one well when I can drink from twenty?
Hi-lo-do-si-dosy, stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night, I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

Cowboy, cowboy name the day July'd be nice, I reckon
I'd gladly meet you at the church, July the 32nd
Hi-lo-do-si-dosy, stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night, I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

You sleep all day and spoon all night and eat your favorite chow
Then why should I get married man, that's what I'm doing now
Hi-lo-do-si-dosy, stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night, I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar
