The Boy Who Couldn't Hoe Corn Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

tell you little story and it won't take long
a lazy farmer who wouldn't hoe his corn
the reason why i never could tell
but that young man was always well

he planted his corn in the month of june
by july it was up to his eyes
come september came a big frost
and all the young mans corn was lost

his cornship had just begun
said young man have you hoed some corn
well i tried and i tried and i tried in vain
but i don't believe i raised one grain

he went downtown to his neighbors door
he had often been before
said pretty little miss will you marry me
little miss what do you see?

why do you come for me to wed
can't even make your own corn grain
single i am and will remain
a lazy man i won't maintain

he turned his back and walked away
sayn little miss you woo the day
you woo the day that you were born
for givin me the devil cause i wouldn't hoe corn
