Bobby Bare — Big Ben Colson lyrics

She was young and she was pretty a victim of a rich man's whim
When she met a wealthy gentleman Big Ben Colson and she had a child by him
Well he promised her a wedding that would give their child a name
But she waited at the altar till the sunset but her Big Ben never came
But she's not a bad girl didn't mean no wrong
She just loved the wrong man much too strong

Now he sits with the dignitaries and the wealthy ladies all love his charms
While she sits in a lonely shack in Alabama with his baby in her arms
But she's not a bad girl...
