The Hatfield and The McCoy

She was a Hatfield
And I a McCoy
It was just love beween
A girl and a boy

Our daddies grandaddies
And those from before
Might think us irreverant
To open that door

She lived two towns over
It was love at first sight….
We would slip out and meet
Every Sat. night
The neighbors all thought
It just wasn’t right
But we were in love
And it wasn’t our fight

Only two counties apart
She lived in West V
My home was Kentucky
The suitor was me

To us it was foolish
The feud was so old
Even though it was famous
From the tales that were told

She lived two towns over
It was love at first sight….
We would slip out and meet
Every Sat. night
The neighbors all thought
It just wasn’t right
But we were in love
And it wasn’t our fight

We’d meet after dark
At a barn down the line
We were not feuding people
For that night she was mine

We would run off together
After school was complete
We’d change both our names
We would be real discreet

She lived two towns over
It was love at first sight….
We would slip out and meet
Every Sat. night
The neighbors all thought
It just wasn’t right
But we were in love
And it wasn’t our fight

Our folks would reject us
And spoil our joy
Cause here was a Hatfield
With a real McCoy

For now, we’ll be secret
Share our love cross the fence
And we’ll wait till our kin folk
Wake up with some sense
