"I'M SETTING ON DE RAIL, DINAH. "
As sung by White's band of Minstrels.
I'm setting on de rail, Dinah,
Whar we sat side by side, 'Way down in ole Virginny, lub
When fust you war my bride, De corn was springing berry fast,
And de coon he pranced around ; Oh den what happy days we pass'd
On ole Virginny's ground !
chorus :
I'm setting on de rail, Dinah,
Whar we sat side by side, 'Way down in ole Virginny lub,
When fust you whar my bride.
How oft Ibe sat beneaf de trees,
Wid Dinah by my side, To watch de little 'coon at playŚ
It whar my only pride ! De banjo, too, for her I'd play,
While she would dance around ; An' dem eyes dey shine as bright as day,
On ole Virginny's ground.
I'm setting on de rail, Dinah, &c
