Knock Kneed Suzy

June Carter:
Knock Kneed Suzy she couldn’t be choosy
Till she met old Snaggle-Tooth Sam
She said “dear, brother, don’t want to be your mother
Just want to be the gal around

I want all your loving, your kissing and your hugging
So far I’ve been turned down
You can see at a glance that I haven’t had a chance
So I’m gunning for Snaggle-Tooth Sam”

Knock Kneed Suzy she couldn’t be choosy
Set her cap for Snaggle-Tooth Sam
Wrote him a letter said she could do no better
He’s the only guy left in town

Then she put on her paint, made her look like what she ain’t
She wasn’t anyone’s clown
Suzy learned how to dance for she wanted his romance
She just loved old Snaggle-Tooth Sam

Knock Kneed Suzy she couldn’t be choosy
So she hunted old Snaggle-Tooth Sam
In the cavern, in every joint and tavern
Old Sam could not be found

Suzy kept a trying, no time for crying
Bad luck wouldn’t get her down
She was going down the street, she just happened to meet
Her one and only Snaggle-Tooth Sam

Knock Kneed Suzy she couldn’t be choosy
So she said to Snaggle-Tooth Sam
“Come a bit closer, now don’t you tell me no, sir
You’re the best ‘un I ever found

If you’re only willing, the preacher I’ll be billing
I want to settle down”
Sam said the fatal yes, old Suzy did the rest
So she married Snaggle-Tooth Sam
