"The Prettiest Girl" info

Does anyone know this cadence? It starts out....

"The prettiest girl

I ever saw

Was sipping Bourbon

Threw a straw"

Blah Blah Blah

Then it ends....

"The wedding was

A formal one

Her daddy brought

A white shot gun..."

Can anyone fill in the missing parts??

I walked right up
I sat right down
I ordered up
another round.

I placed my hand
upon her knee
she said GI
your teasing me.

I placed my hand
upon her thigh
she said GI
that's way too high.

I picked her up
I laid her down
her long blond hair
lay all around.

the wedding was
a formal one
her daddy had
a white shotgun.

and now I've got
a mother-in-law
and 14 kids
who call me pa.

The prettiest girl
I ever saw
Was sippin' bourbon
Through a straw

Her hair was blond
Her eyes were green
The prettiest girl
I ever seen

I walked right up
And sat right down
Then I bought
Another round

I placed my hand
Upon her knee
She said GI
You're teasing me

I placed my hand
Upon her thigh
She said GI
Don't go too high

I picked her up
And placed her down
And soon our clothes
Were all around

The wedding was
A beautiful one
Her father had
A big shotgun

Now I have
A mother in law
And fourteen kids
Who call me Pa

The moral of
The story here
Instead of bourbon
Stick with beer
