Pretty Lavinia
Of the Six and Five Mile Inns
Works the lost parlors
In a town of missing men
Carolina swamp juice
By the finger
As she lingers
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

What goes in Lavinia's drum?
One part kisses
Three part rum
Northern girl with a southern tongue
Pretty Lavinia

Another body was combed from the Ashley bank
Tied with cattails and stones until it sank
But Lavinia, breezing corners
Past the mourners
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

Gossip and needles
Where the chapel ladies meet
And pray for Lavinia
A sauntering down the street
Where's Anne Coley?
What's delayed her?
Who can say, sir?
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

What goes in Lavinia's drum?
One part kisses
Three part rum
Northern girl with a southern tongue
Pretty Lavinia
What goes in Lavinia's drum?
One part kisses
Three part rum
Northern girl with a southern tongue
Pretty Lavinia

Mr. Pearl Akin
Found in the penny fish carts
Split wide open
With salt upon his parts
There's his top hat
There's his waistcoat
Where's the bank note?
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

Samuel McGinty
Entered for a roof and bed
And a shot of red whiskey
Was poured a black triple instead
Stumbled Room Six
There and about
Never checked out
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

What goes in Lavinia's drum
One part kisses
Three part rum
Northern girl with a southern tongue
Pretty Lavinia
What goes in Lavinia's drum?
One part kisses
Three part rum
Northern girl with a southern tongue
Pretty Lavinia

Pretty Lavinia
Of the Six and Five Mile Inns
Works the lost parlors
In a town of missing men
Carolina swamp juice
By the finger
As she lingers
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia

Of the Six and Five Mile Inns
Works the lost parlors
In a town of missing men
Carolina swamp juice
By the finger
As she lingers
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia
Pretty, pretty, pretty Lavinia
