The green back dollar

One I had a darling sweetheart
And she thought the world of me
Untill another man persuaded
And she cares no more for me
I don't want your green back dollar
I don't want your watch and chain
All I want is you, my darling

Many a time we strolled together
Down beside the deep blue sea
Now in your heart you love another
In my grave I'd rather be
I don't want your watch and chain
All I want is my big long pistol
To blow out your dirty brains

You said I could not marry
Mama said it would never do
But if you ever learn to love me
I will run away with you
I don't want your green back dollar
I don't want your watch and chain
All I want is you, my darling
Won't you take me back again
