NELLIE WAS A LADY.
Key of B Hat.
Down on the Mississippi floating,
Long time I trabbled on de way; All night de cotton-wood a-toting,
Singing for my true lub all de day.
Chorus.—Nellie was a lady, last night she died; Toll de bell for lubly Nell, My dark Virginia bride!
Now I 'se unhappy and I 'se weeping,
Can't tote de cotton-wood no more; Last night while Nellie was a-sleeping,
Death came a-knocking at the door.
Chorus.— Nellie was a lady, last night she died; Toll de bell for lubly Nell, My dark Virginia bride !
