Berta

 

Chorus
oh berta berta, oh lord gal, ho ah
oh berta berta, oh lord gal, well now

Verses
When you marry don't you marry a farming man
When you marry don't you marry a farming man

Every day monday hoah, in your hand
Every day monday hoah, in your hand

Raise em up high and then a, drop em down
Raise em up high and then a, drop em down

Wasn't no difference when the, sun goes down
Wasn't no difference when the, sun goes down

Go ahead marry him, don't you, wait on me
I may not want you when a, I go free

When you marry marry a, railroad man
Cause every day a sunday dollar, in your hand

Got an buddy in Houston and she living at ease
I'm on old parchment got to work for leave

Who's that coming well ah down the road, ho ah
walks like Alberta but she walks too slow, ho ah
