Miss Marcy
Johnny Horton

E                       A          E
Billy boy, Billy boy   Sit on the porch   
 
E                          A           E
Pa married Miss Marcy when I was just six    
                        B7                         
Ma died when I was just two
     E                           A              E 
Without her, us younguns would have been in a fix   
                   A         E      B7
She cared for us like mammys do

Chorus:
E                       A          E
Billy boy, Billy boy   Sit on the porch   
                                 B7
Do you know what went on at the still
      E                     A         E
Joe Wilson is dying   Tom Jenkins is dead
                            A         E    B7
And they say that Pa done shot Uncle Will

E                       A           E 
Billy boy, Billy boy   Sit on the porch   
                              B7 
Do you know what started the fight
          E                         A        E  
Twas an hour passed milkin when Marcy got home  
                   A             E    B7
Miss Marcy done stayed out all night

E                  A             E    B7
Miss Marcy done stayed out all night


E                         A         E 
Dad was a strange one he hated the dance   
                           B7
He never did go for such frills
       E                         A            E
Marcy went with Joe Wilson when she got the chance   
                A          E    B7     
Or Tom or sometimes Uncle Will
 
     E                    A         E
Now Pa got more jealous, day after day    
                           B7  
This morning it came to a head
  E                      A              E   
Today at the still they all made their play   
                     A             E    B7   
On account of Miss Marcy, theyre dead

Chorus:
E                       A          E
Billy boy, Billy boy   Sit on the porch   
                                 B7
Do you know what went on at the still
      E                     A         E
Joe Wilson is dying   Tom Jenkins is dead
                            A         E    B7
And they say that Pa done shot Uncle Will

E                           A         E    B7
And they say that Pa done shot Uncle Will

E                        A          E 
Billy boy, Billy boy    Sit on the porch    
                                  B7 
Youre shaking boy whats ailing you
     E                           A              E     
The blade of your knife is all stained crimson red  
                 A           E  B7
Miss Marcy well shes dying too

E                        A          E 
Billy boy, Billy boy    Sit on the porch
