Let him go, let him tarry, let him sink or let him swim
He doesn’t care for me, and I’m sure I don’t for him
He can go and get another that I hope he will enjoy
For I’m going to marry a far nicer boy

He wrote me a letter saying he was very bad
I sent him back an answer saying I was awful glad
He wrote me another saying he was well and strong
But I care no more for him than the ground he walks upon

Some of his friends they have a good kind wish for me
Others of his friends sure they could hang me from a tree
But soon I’ll let them see my love and soon I’ll let them know
That I can get a new sweetheart at any place I go

He can go to his old mother now and set her mind at ease
I hear she’s an old woman and very hard to please
It’s slighting me and talking ill is what she’s always done
Since I was courting her great big ugly son
