Categorized by a lost love theme ("Don't forget me, little darling") and the line(s) "I don't want your greenback dollar; I don't want your watch and chain." Many versions say that the couple cannot marry because of parental opposition Most versions of this appear to be pastiches of floating verses -- or at least floating themes. The mention of the "greenback dollar" is so characteristic, however, that I decided to classify this as a separate song. - RBW
I don't want your greenback dollar.
I don't want your watch an' chain;
All I want is your love, little darlin',
Won't you take me back again?

Papa says we cannot marry,
Mama says it cannot be;
All I want is your love, little darlin'
Won't you take me back again?
Some folks say you love another,
An' you care no more for me;
All I want is your love, little darlin'
Won't you take me back again?
