I Took My Gal A-walking
Written by Charlie Poole



Chords


Song

1.

I took my gal a-walking, it was on one Saturday night,
I took my gal a-walking, the moon was shining bright,
I asked her if she’d kiss me and this is what she said,
She said she would not kiss me, so I kissed her instead.

chorus:

I ain’t got nobody, I’m as blue as can be,
I ain’t got nobody to make a big fuss of me,
If I don’t get somebody I’m going back to the farm,
Feed the cows and chickens and won’t give a golly gosh darn.

2.

I took my gal a-walking, it was on one Saturday night,
I took my gal a-walking, the moon was shining bright,
I asked her if she’d marry me and this is what she said,
She said she would not marry me if the rest of the world was dead.

3.

Last night I went to see her as happy as could be,
Tonight she's with another, she cares no more for me,
So here's a jug of whiskey, so sparkling and so clear,
It's not as sweet as a young maid's kiss but a darn sight more sincere.
