American Ballads and Folk Songs
Chorus:
That sweet little gal, that true little gal, The gal I left behind me.
If ever I get off the trail And the Indians they don't find me, I'll make my way straight back again To the gal I left behind me.
The wind did blow, the rain did fell, The hail did fall and blind me; I thought of that gal, that sweet little gal, The gal I left behind me.
She wrote ahead to the place I said, I was always glad to find it; She says, "I'm true when you get through, Ride back and you will find me."
When we sold out I took the train, I knew where I would find herj When I got back we had a smack And that was no goldarned liar.
OL> MOTHER HARE
Popular square-dance tune of fifty years ago.
