THE OLD PINE TREE.
Words liy Charles White, and sung by his Band of Minstrels, at the Melodeon.
Oh, darkies now I'm gwine to sing,
De truth to you I'll tell, Ob happy days dat I hab seen,
Wid my dear Nancy Bell. O, I wish dat I was back again,
Way down in Tennisee, Wid my dear Nancy by my side,
Beneath de old pine tree.
Chorus. 'Tis many a night since first we met, Beneath dat ole pine tree, An dar we told our tales ob lub, How happy we would be»
My lub has left me long ago,
Whar she is, no one can tell. An I am nearly crazy now,
For my dear Nancy Bell; But I dreamt last night when all was still
Dat she'd come back to me, An I would yet see happy days,
Beneath de old pine tree.
'Tis many a night, &c,
I quite forgot I war so old,
It seems to me a dream, Dat three score years hab past an gone,
Since I was seventeen*
