It'll Aggravate Your Soul

Come all of you people take warning from me
Dont take no girl to Tennessee
For if you get married and dont agree
It'll aggravate your soul

We left Maces early in the night
Expect to get married before daylight
So many things happened to hinder our flight
It aggravated my soul

Arrived at Bristol at eleven o'clock
The parson was there right on the spot
We found the license had been forgot
It aggravated my soul

We went for the license in an automobile
Run so fast you couldn't see the wheels
No one can explain how bad I did feel
It aggravated my soul

We stayed all night at the Bristol Hotel
Just to make folks think we were swell
Next morning they put us in the Bristol Herald
It aggravated my soul

And when the new styles was comin around
She began to get ready to go to town
You know right then she's millerin to stop down ?
It'll aggravate your soul

She wants a new coat and a hobbled skirt
And you cant get in before the young uns entered
And when she gets out oh how she will flirt
It'll aggravate your soul

And when the persons gather round your head
You'll think of what your dear old mother said
With the pain in your back and heart and head
It'll aggravate your soul

Now young men take warning from me
Dont take no girl to Tennessee
For if you get married and dont agree
It'll aggravate your soul
