Les in MT Lyr Req: Swede from North Dakota (8) Swede from North Dakota - lyrics 08 Feb 98


I'm looking for additional verses to this homestead classic -

I bin a Swede from Nort' Dakota
Work on farmstead 'bout two yare
Tink I go to Minnesota
Take in the big Minneapolis fair

I buy me a suit, I buy me a bottle
Dress me up way out of sight
Yump on the tail of a Yim Hill wagon
Yesus Chreest, I feel for fight

I go down to Seven Corners
Where Salvation Army play
One dem vomans come to me
Dis is what dat voman say

She say "Will you work for Yesus?"
I say, "How much Yesus pay?"
She say, "Yesus don't pay nothing."
I say, "I won't work today."

I think there is another verse or two about getting back to the farmstead - anyone got them ? Thanks!

Lyrics are in the DT here: THE SWEDE FROM NORTH DAKOTA --JoeClone, 20-Nov-07.
