Traditional, from Texas

Oh, when I was single, oh when, oh when.
Oh, when I was single, oh when.
Oh, when I was single
My pockets would jingle,
And I wish I was single again.

2. Well, I married me a wife, oh then, oh then.
I married me a wife, oh then.
I married me a wife,
She's the trouble of my life,
And I wish I was single again.

3. Well, my wife she died, oh then, oh then.
My wife she died, oh then.
Well, my wife she died,
And I laughed till I cried
To think I was single again.

4. Well, I married me another, oh then, oh then.
I married me another, oh then.
I married me another,
She's worse than the other,
And I wish I was single again.

5. Well, my wife she died, oh then, oh then.
My wife she died, oh then.
Well, my wife she died,
And I laughed till I cried
To think I was single again.

6. Well, I married me another, oh then, oh then.
I married me another, oh then.
I married me another,
She's the devil's grandmother,
And I wish I was single again.
