Chewing Gum Lyrics

Album: In the Shadow of Clinch Mountain

Mama sent me to the spring, she told me not to stay
I fell in love with a pretty little girl, and could not get away

Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum
Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum

First she give me peaches, next she give me pears
Next she give me fifty cents, kissed me on the stairs

Mommy don't 'low me to whistle, poppy don't 'low me to sing
They don't 'low me to marry, I'll marry just the same

I wouldn't have a lawyer, I'll tell you the reason why
Every time he opens his mouth he tells a great big lie

I wouldn't have a doctor, I'll tell you the reason why
He rides all over the country and makes the people die

I wouldn't have a farmer, I'll tell you the reason why
Because he has so plenty to eat, 'specially pumpkin pie

I took my girl to church last night How do you reckon she done?
She walked right up in the preacher's face and chewed her chewing gum
