(To be read with a hillbilly accent and cadence)
My wife and me been together a mighty long time.
Been more years than most serve for a crime.
We fight we squabble we holler we scream,
but thet’s just the milk what comes with the cream.
I wouldn’t trade her I tell yah I won’t.
If you say I think otherwise I tell yah I don’t.
She’s quite the looker, real purty I know,
that’s prob-be why we got nine kids in tow.
I know life with me is oft-times a chore;
seems that some days I’m dense as a door,
but she stays with it – she’s loyal yah see.
I know there wern’t no other woman for me.
We’re looking forward to plenty more years.
I’m sure they be laughter along with some tears,
and no doubt about it, I tell yah it’s true;
My darlin’ my honey, I will always love you.
