American Ballads and Folk Songs
DINK'S SONG
Ef I had wings like Norah's dove, I'd fly up the river to the man I love. Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
Ise got a man, an' he's long and tall, Moves his body like a cannon ball, Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
One o' dese days, an' it won't be long,
Call my name an' I'll be gone.
Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
'Member one night, a-drizzlin' rain,
Roun' my heart I felt a pain.
Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
When I wo' my ap'ons low,
Couldn't keep you from my do'.
Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
Now I wears my ap'ons high,
Sca'cely ever see you passin' by.
Fare thee well, O Honey, fare thee well.
[195]
