“Georgia Buck”


"Oh, my name is Georgia Buck, and I never had much luck." Various verses about Georgia's troubles and his wife, typically ending "Georgia Buck is dead, the last thing he said Was, 'Don't ever let a woman have her way" (or "Dig me a hole in the ground.")


Roud lumps this with "The Southern Soldier Boy (Barbro Buck)," or at least some versions of it. That seems to be based solely on the word "Buck" in the title. - RBW
