Katie Dear (The Louvin Brothers)

Oh Katy dear, go ask your mother If you can be a bride of mine If she says yes, come back and tell me If she says no, we'll run away Oh Willie dear, there's no use in asking She's in her room, up taking rest And by her side lies a silver dagger To slay the one that I love best Oh Katy dear, go and ask your father If you can be a bride of mine If he says yes, come on back and tell me If he says no, we'll run away Oh Willie dear, there's no use in asking For he's there too, up taking rest And by his side lies that golden dagger To slay the one that I love best Then he picked up that silver dagger And plunged it through his troubled heart Saying goodbye Katy, goodbye darling The time has come for us to part Then she picked up that bloody dagger And stove it through her lily white breast Saying goodbye momma, goodbye papa I'll die with the one that I love best
