    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    Oh, Lily Bell, oh, Lily Bell,
    Though I may have done some foolin, this is why I never will
    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    Oh, Mary Ann, oh, Mary Ann
    Though I’ve done some moonlight walking this is why I up and went
    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    Oh, Sally Jane, oh, Sally Jane
    Though I’d love to stay forever this is why I can’t remain
    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    Oh, Bessy Lou, oh, Bessy Lou
    Though we’ve done a heap of dreamin’ this is why it won’t come true
    I got spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle
    As I go ridin’ merrily along
    And they sing, ‘Away, too glad, you’re single’
    And that song ain’t so very far from wrong
    So I’ll go jingling, a-jangling a-jingling along
