John - some suggestions on "Shorty"

1.3 He died with a sad, broke, ACHIN' heart.

3.3 I'd rather be with YOU, woman, than anybody else (he does kind of swallow "you")


and "Sorry"

3.1 Now, go on, girl, needn't FLIRT, know you done TORE YOUR UNDERSKIRT

4.1 ...got a girl CHANCES gonna pay my way

Thanks so much for the help, Chris.  Boy, I wasn't even close on that 3.1 line in "Ain't You Sorry".  When I re-listened to the 4.1 correction in "Ain't You Sorry", I think Mance sings:
   . . . got a girl, chance SHE'S gonna pay my way
It is so much better to have these transcriptions right.  Thanks for all of your help.
