GUEST,S.T.M Songs for young woman - old man duo (58* d) Lyr Add: BLUE BLEEZING BLIND DRUNK 16 Jan 13


RoyH, I think the song you're thinking of is Seventeen Come Sunday...

As I walked out one May morning
One May morning so early
I overtook a handsome maid
Just as the sun was rising
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day

Her shoes were bright
Her stockings white
Her buckles shone like silver
She had a black and roving eye
And her hair hung down her shoulder
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day

How old are you? My fair pretty maid
How old are you my honey
She answered me right cheerfully
I'm seventeen come Sunday
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day

I went down to her mammy's house
The moon was shining clearly
I sang beneath her window pane
Your soldier loves you dearly
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day

Oh solider won't you marry me?
For now's your time or never
For if you do not marry me
My heart is broke forever
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day

And now she is the soldier's wife
And sails across the brine-o
The drum and fife is her delight
And a merry man in mine, Oh
With my rue dum day
Fol the diddle dol
Fol the dol th diddle dum the day


There's also Blue Bleezing Blind Drunk...


I'll go and I'll get blue bleezing blind drunk
Just to give Mickey a warning
And just for to spite I will stay out all night
And come rolling home drunk in the morning

Now friends, I have a sad story
A very sad story to tell
I married a man for his money
And he's worse than the devil himself

For when Mickey comes home in the evening
He batters me all black and blue
He knocks me about from the kitchen
From the bedroom right through to the room

For of whiskey I ne'er was a lover
But what can a poor woman do
I'll go and I'll drown all my sorrows
But I wish I could drown Mickey too


My Husband's Got No Courage In Him...

As I walked out one May morning
To view the fields and the leaves a-springing
I saw two maidens standing by
And one of them her hands was wringing

Chorus (after each verse):
O dear o, o dear o
My husband's got no courage in him
O dear o
All sort of vittles I did provide
All sorts of meats that's fitting for him
With oyster pie and rhubarb too
But nothing will put courage in him

My husband can dance and caper and sing
And do anything that is fitting for him
But he cannot do the thing I want
Because he has no courage in him

My husband's admired wherever he goes
And everyone looks well upon him
With his handsome features and well-shaped leg
But still he's got no courage in him

Every night when I goes to bed
I lie and throw my leg right o'er him
And my hand I clap between his thighs
But I can't put any courage in him

Seven long years I've made his bed
And every night I've lain beside him
And this morning I rose with my maidenhead
For still he's got no courage in him

I wish my husband he was dead
And in the/his grave I'd quickly lay him
And then I'd try another one
That's got a little courage in him






***








I was kind of confused from your above comments what kind of song you want...

Songs where the older man has the upper hand or is shown in a good light?

Where there are no children/relationships involved?

But the older man shouldn't be a variant of death?


Haha, sorry, can you clear it up for me?
