-------------------------------------------------

I could have married Imogene, or Josephine or Mame,
And I could have married Sally Lou, or let's see, what's her name?
But I thought and thought and thought and thought and now my heart's at rest.
'Cause I have sixed out to a vent, and you can have the rest.
 
I got a gal I love in North and South Dakota,
There ain't no difference in my love, not one iota,
I guess that two gals puts me one above the quota,
Still I get a gal in North and South Dakota.
Oooo, oooo, wish I knew which of my true loves is true.
I got a gal I love in North and South Dakota,
There ain't no difference in my love, not one iota,
Just wait till they hear about the gal in Minnesota,
It's a situation, partner, that vexes,
Guess I go back to the gal I love in Texas.

I guess I've even lost that gal in Minnesota,
It's a situation, partner, that vexes,
If I had the nerve I could go back to Texas.
Oooo, oooo, guess I'll go back to the gal I love in Texas.
Hey, Pedro, hold it on!
