Ol William Marshal was a friend of mine One night we stayed up late drinkin' cheap wine And long after

it was time for us to go to bed He leaned over his chair and says to me Logan, you know that I have daughters three And it would please me greatly if you took one of them to wed. I resisted the urge to turn and flee Since Marshal had treated me quite splendidly I decided to meet the daughters on this man. Looking back on it now I can see I was wrong And if you listen to the end of this song You'll agree I should have simply up and ran. Oh Marshal give me a good horse and I'll just ride away And you can try to catch me if you can 'Cuz I'm a single fella, and I just wanna play And a good horse is better than a woman any day.

Now Hildgarde was the oldest of three Her eyebrows resembled iron filigree with a wart on her nose that swear was big as a cat She had a space in her teeth as wide as a horse And her bony knees pointed the wrong way of course and I wondered what the hell am I supposed to do with that? Her hair was the color of something dead This pile of muskrat attached to her head And I couldn't help but jump when she said my name; Her painful voice rang out like a bell Screeching out like a soul from Hell and I screamed 'Get thee back to the place from which you came!!!"

Oh Marshal give me a good horse and I'll just ride away And you can try to catch me if you can 'Cuz I'm a single fella, and I just wanna play And a good horse is better than a woman any day.

Eloise was the middle child Her general state was far from mild I could tell she had one side - and it was bad I gave her a smile and she winked at me then she bowled up her fist and punched me solidly And... Oh god, that was the worst pain I ever had. She continued to show her love for me With love taps that would sink a ship at sea And I didn't know if I was gonna last It was then that she wanted to give me a squeeze and wrap me up a tight as you please That I knew I had to get myself out fast!

Oh Marshal give me a good horse and I'll just ride away And you can try to catch me if you can 'Cuz I'm a single fella, and I just wanna play And a good horse is better than a woman any day.

Now Constance was just as cute as can be She could cook, and sing delightfully And said she liked to snuggle on a warm rainy night But when when I wanted to step outside She she screamed and stomped and yelled and cried Every time that I tried to leave would start a fight. Everywhere that I went she was right by my side There was no place on this earth I could hide

She She And So i

clung to my neck like scarf made out of lead kept so close that I lost my breath I knew this woman would be my death said 'Hey! Look over there!' ...and then I fled.

So Marshal give me a good horse and I'll just ride away And you can try to catch me if you can 'Cuz I'm a single fella, and I just wanna play And a good horse is better than a woman any day. Yeah Marshal give me a good horse and I'll just ride away And you can try to find me if you can I'll remain a single fella, 'cuz I just gotta say That a good horse is better than a woman any day. Yeah a good horse is better than a woman any day.
