GUEST,Sarah Lyr Req: Charming Betsy (41) RE: Lyr Req: Charming Betsy 05 Dec 08

Haha! I was just looking the lyrics to a version of the song that I knew growing up that ended up being completely different from the recorded versions (check iTunes, there are fourteen on there alone) but I only remember one verse from it other than the modified chorus I'd known:
Rich girls, they have them fancy flush toilets
Country girls, the same
Mountain girls just find a friendly bush
But the do it just the same

All around the mountain
Calling Betsy, BETSY
All around the mountain Laura Lee-EE
If I ever see her again
Will the good Lord remember me?

I know it's completely different from the original story and context but that's what I was taught. That song was one of my childhood favorites :)
