Cindy
5.  Cindy went to preaching; She shouted all around; She got so full of glory
She rolled her stockings down. Chorus
6. When I go a-fishing,
I go with hook and line; And when I go to marry, I go with a willing mind. Chorus
B
"Sindy." Obtained from Dr. Daniel S. Gage, Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri, August, 1931, who had it from Richard H. Moser, Swanna-noa, North Carolina.
1.  Grief and sorrow is about to break my heart,
Thinking about that girl of mine; Good Lord, nobody knows my heart.
Get along home, Sindy, get along home.
2.  Sindy is a pretty girl;
Sindy is my lover; If Sindy dies before I do,
I'll marry Sindy's mother. Get along home, Sindy, get along home. 3.1 went to Sindy's house one day,
Sindy was a-sweeping; When I told her of my love,
She commenced weeping. Get along home, Sindy, get along home.
4.  Sindy in the summer time,
Sindy in the fall; If 1 can't get Sindy,
I won't have any at all. Get along home, Sindy, get along home.
5.  Sindy got religion,
She got it once before; Every time she heard a banjo,
She was the first on the floor. Get along home, Sindy, get along home.
Sindy, fare thee well.
