37. I Know Where I’m Going
 
By Anonymous
 
 
IKNOW where I’m going,
I know who’s going with me,
I know who I love,
But the dear knows who I’ll marry.
 
I’ll have stockings of silk,        5
Shoes of fine green leather,
Combs to buckle my hair
And a ring for every finger.
 
Feather beds are soft,
Painted rooms are bonny;        10
But I’d leave them all
To go with my love Johnny.
 
Some say he’s dark,
I say he’s bonny,
He’s the flower of them all        15
My handsome, coaxing Johnny.
 
I know where I’m going,
I know who’s going with me,
I know who I love,
But the dear knows who I’ll marry.        20
