Brewster: Ballads and Songs of Indiana
2.     The youngest daughter she got her a beau,
Blow down, blow down; The youngest daughter she got her a beau,
Most dear to me. The youngest daughter she got her a beau; The oldest daughter she had none. And Fll prove true, true to my love If my love'll prove true to me.
3.     Her beau he got her a beaver hat,
Blow down, blow down; Her beau he got her a beaver hat,
Most dear to me. Her beau he got her a beaver hat; The oldest girl she didn't like that. And I'll prove true, true to my love If my love'Il prove true to me.
4.   "Sister, dear Sister, please walk the seashore,
Blow down, blow down; "Sister, dear Sister, please walk the seashore,
Most dear to me. "Sister, dear Sister, please walk the seashore And see the ships come sailing o'er." And I'll prove true, true to my love If my love'll prove true to me.
5.     And as they were walking the sea brim,
Blow down, blow down; And as they were walking the sea brim,
Most dear to me. And as they were walking the sea brim, The oldest one pushed the youngest one in; And I'll prove true, true to my love If my love'H prove true to me.
