I went searching for my ancestor, I cannot find him still
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will
He married where a courthouse burned, he mended all his fences
He avoided any man who came to take the Census
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame
And every twenty years or so, this rascal changed his name
His parents came from Europe. They should be on some list of passengers
But somehow they got missed
And no one else in this wide world is searching for this man
So I play genea-solitaire to find him if I can
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed
But the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest
He died before the county clerks decided to keep records
No family bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts
To top it off, this ancestor, who caused me many groans
Just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named Jones!
