2d voice. She's gone, and she's left you, For fear dat you'd harm her, She's gone away forebber,
For she's gone,—(ls£ voice,) Whar!
^horus. To Alabama.
Now she's gone and she's left you, Because you war brack hearted; You nebber more will see her, For she's gone,—Whar? To Alabama.
Her eyes, dey shine like diamonds
Her lips are red as coral; She used to live on mush and milk,
We nebber had a quarrel; Her voice was like de jay bird,
'Twas sweet as any honey; At dancing she could beat dem all, For any kind of money. 2d voice. But she's gone, and she's left you* She had n't time to tell you; She went wid her brudder Samuel, But she's gone,—(lst voice,) Whar?
Chorus. To Alabama.
Now she's gone, &c.
If ebber I meet dat gal again,
Der's one ting I will tell h©', She mus'nt fool her time wid .10.
But get some udder feller : For I am one ob dat ere sort,
Best kind ob lookin' nigger Plenty gals down in de south
Admire dis darkey's figur*
Chorus Now she's gone, &c.
