I'll sing you a song of a horrible past
It goes by the name of my love, I guess
I can not have a bow at all
I'm sure to be skipping out in the fall

And one by one, they all clear out
Thinkin' to better myself, no doubt
Caring little how far I go
From the poor little girls of Ontario

Well first I got mad on Edith Brown
The prettiest girl in all the town
I tipped my hat and sailed away
Soon to be stoppin' in Manitomba

Won over little Jenny with my white Corvette
A high still color and a new plug hat
I said if I stayed she'd have to beg
I'm on my way to Winnipeg

And one by one, they all clear out
Thinkin' to better myself, no doubt
Caring little how far I go
From the poor little girls of Ontario

Then a long-legged girl with a button nose
I really though she would propose
But she packed her things and now she's gone
Clear out to Saskatchewan

So I packed my clothes in a carpet sack
I'll go out there and I'll never come back
And I'll find me a girl and a good one too
And I'll be the one to see it through

And one by one, they all clear out
Thinkin' to better themselves, no doubt
Caring little how far they go
From the travelin' man in Ontario

I'll sing you a song of a horrible past
It goes by the name of my love, I guess
