This song was found in the sheet music of “At an Ole Virginia Wedding” and is dated Sept. 9, 1900
Dark an’ stormy may come de wedder
I jines dis he-male an’ dis she’male togedder.
Let none, but Him dat makes de thunder,
Put dis he-male and dis she-male asunder.
I darefor ‘nounce you bofe de same.
Be good, go ‘long, an’ keep up yo’ name.
De broomstick’s jumped, de world not wide.
She’s now yo’ own. Salute yo’ bride!
