Subject: RE: Marry now I will, when rivers run uphill (Suitors)
I too sang this song at Girl Scout Camp. The last verse was slightly different;

I got married yesterday, oh a lay ah pah kee yah,
And the rivers ran that way, oh a lay ah pah kee yah,
And the fish began to fly, oh a lay ah pah kee yah,
And tomorrow I must die, oh a lay ah pah kee yah.
