Pretty Polly Recorded by The Stanley Brothers Written by Ralph Stanley
G Oh Polly Pretty Polly would you take me in time
Polly Pretty Polly would you take me in time D7 G Let me set beside you and tell you my mind
Well my mind is to marry and never to part
My mind is to marry and never to part D7 G The first time I saw you it wounded my heart
Oh Polly Pretty Polly come go along with me
Polly Pretty Polly come go along with me D7 G Before we get married some pleasures to see
Oh he led her over mountains and valleys so deep
He led her over hills and valleys so deep D7 G Pretty Polly mistrusted and then began to weep
Oh Willie Little Willie I'm afraid to of your ways
Willie Little Willie I'm afraid of your ways D7 G The way you've been rambling you'll lead me astray
Oh Polly Pretty Polly your guess is about right
Polly Pretty Polly your guess is about right D7 G I dug on your grave the biggest part of last night
Oh she knelt down before him a pleading for her life
She knelt down before him a pleading for her life D7 G Let me be a single girl if I can't be your wife
Oh Polly Pretty Polly that never can be
Polly Pretty Polly that never can be D7 G Your past recitation's been trouble to me
Oh went down to the jailhouse and what did he say
He went down to the jailhouse and what did he say D7 G I've killed Pretty Polly and trying to get away
