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 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.
