Brewster; Ballads and Songs of Indiana            349
5.      Your eyes are of a sparkling jet;
Like diamonds they do shine. Your disposition is so sweet
It charms this heart of mine.
6.      Of all the girls I ever saw
And all the girls I knew, What would I care for this whole world If I was married to you ?
7.      The crow is black, my love, you know,
Although she may turn white; If ever I prove false to you,
Bright day shall turn to night.
8.      Bright day shall turn to night, my love,
The sky itself shall turn. The elements shall melt with heat; The sea shall rage and burn.
9.      I wish my breast was made of glass,
Wherein you might behold Your name engraved all on my heart, The letters sealed with gold.
10. Of all the girls I ever saw, Believe me what I say, You are the one that I shall love Until my dying day.
