If I could live a thousand years',

If I could give a thousand lives.
And choose my place o' givln,?
I wouldn't stir a single Inch
From oft this very groun'?
I'd live my life and die my deaths
Right here In this old town.
There's more good people live right;
Than eny place on earth?
Of good old hospitality j

As they're wlmmen folks Is sweet.
