Awkward Donald by Tanglefoot

D                                                                                                  A
Awkward Donald ripped his trousers chasing home the brindled cow
D                                                                                     A                                              D
Shrewd young Catherine caught his measure, sowed him up with a wedding vow
Em                                                                           G                                              A
Catherine works with thread and needle, Donald hides down in the hay
D                                                                    A                                 D
Asks him if he wants to marry, words that he’s to shy to say

A woolen suit and thigh-high gumboots, Donald leaves his shoes at home
Hoping they will keep their squeak for dancing when the preaching’s done
Awkward Donald’s at the altar, in his pocket there’s a hole
Catherine searching for the ring pulls off his boot and out it rolls

Chorus:
G                                                                              A                               D
Catherine would you do it again, fall in love with an awkward man?
A                                                                                                   G – A – D
Catherine would you do it again, fall in love with an awkward man?
Catherine would you do it again, fall in love with an awkward man?
Catherine would you do it again, fall in love with an awkward man?

The dancing’s done, the keg is bunged, the newly-weds have gone aloft
Awkward Donald moves to quickly,
Suddenly he finds he’s caught his foot in Catherine’s nightgown pocket
One more time with good intention
Catherine tries to circumvent poor Awkward’s misdirection

Chorus

Awkward Donald ripped his trousers chasing home the brindled cow
Shrewd young Catherine caught his measure, they’ve got seven children now
Awkward Donald trips and stumbles when he’s standing on his feet
But he’s learned to thread the needle late at night between the sheets

Chorus
