Dolcy Jones.
The music, with piano-forte accompaniment, published by Messrs. Firth, Pond & Co., New York.
Oh ! ladies, don't you wonder,
When I again appear: I've just been ober yonder,
To see my Dolcy dear; For Dolcy steps so lightly
Among de bricks and stones, Her eyes dey shine so brightly,
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jonest
Chorus. Bye, bye, my darling!
Sleep to de rattle ob de bones Slumber till morning, My lubly Dolcy Jones \
Oh ! when I go a-courting,
I ride thro' mud and rain; I ieabe de old hoss snorting
At de corner ob de lane, I find my Dolcy weeping,
And charm her wid de bones Bye'n bye I leabe her sleeping,
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jones!
Chorus. Bye, bye, my darling! &c.
I went up town dis morning,
To sing a little song; Miss Dolcy sent me warning,
To bring my boots along; For de yard is paved wid cinder,
And de house is built ob stones, And a head is at de window,
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jones J
Chorus. Bye, bye, my darling! &c.
