Do you believe, my Phillis dear, old Mike, with all his
wealth, Can make you half so happy as I with youth and
health? We'll have a little farm, a horse, a pig- and cow, And you will mind the dairy, while I do guide the
plough.
Chorus. Wait for the wagon, &c.
Your lips are red as poppies, your hair so slick and
neat, All braided up with dahlias, and hollyhocks so sweet. It's ev'ry Sunday morning, when I am by your side, We'll jump into the wagon, and all take a ride.
Chorus. Wait for the wagon, &c.
Together on life's journey we'll travel till we stop, And if we have no trouble, we'll reach the happy top Then come with me, sweet Phillis, my dear, my lovely
bride, We'll jump into the wagon, and all take a ride.
Chorus. Wait for the wagon, &c
The Yaller Gal with the Josey on.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by F. D.
Benteen, Baltimore.
I saw a dashing yaller gal,
One day upon the levee; Her form was round, her step was light,
But, vva'nt her feet so heavy ? She cast a tender glance on me
And then my heart was goneó Oh ! she was the tearing yaller gal,
That had a Josey on !
