Hesitating Beauty  - Woody Guthrie

    For your sparkling cocky smile
    I have walked a million miles
    Begging you to come wed me in the Spring
    Why do you my dear delay,
    What makes you laugh and turn away?
    You're a hesitating beauty, Nora Lee

    Well I know that you are itching to get married,
    Nora Lee
    And I know I am twitching for the same thing,
    Nora Lee
    By the stars and clouds above,
    we can spend our lives in love
    You're a hesitating beauty, Nora Lee

    We can build a house and home
    where the flowers come to bloom
    Around our yard I'll nail a fence so high
    That the boys with peeping eyes
    cannot see that angel face
    Of my hesitating beauty, Nora Lee

    We can ramble hand in hand
    across the grasses of our land
    I'll kiss you for each leaf on every tree
    we can bring our kids to play
    where the dry winds blow today
    If you'll quit your hesitating, Nora Lee
