Thread Name: 'Conversation' songs
Subject: RE: 'Conversation' songs
In A-Roving on a Winter's Night there is the stanza:
And it's who's gonna shoe your pretty little foot
And who's gonna glove your little hand
And who's gonna kiss your red ruby lips
Who's gonna be your man.

This is also in a song which I couldn't find in the DT:
1. Wo's gonna shoe your pretty little foot.
Who's gonna glove your hand,
Who's gonna kiss your red ruby lips,
Who's gonna be your man.

2. Papa's gonna shoe my pretty little foot,
Mama's gonna glove my hand,
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips,
I don't need no man.

3. The longest train I ever saw
Was a hundred coaches long,
The only woman I ever saw
Was on this train and gone.

A rather short conversation!.
