Good-Bye, My Honey, I'm Gone.
Copyright, 1885, by W. A. Evans & Bro.

I had a girl, and her name was Isabella,
She ran away with another colored feller,
And my load was all de stronger,
And I couldn't stay no longer;
Good-bye, my honey. I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone,
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone;
And she gave it to me stronger,
And I couldn't stay no longer;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

One day in de middle of de month ob Januyear,
I rolled my dearie in my arms for to soothe her
But her heart was with another,
And she wouldn't let me love her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone,
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone;
And her heart was with another,
And she wouldn't let me love her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

I thought dis girl was de nicest little daisy,
'Till a dude came along from de roller rink so orazy ;
And I hollered for a copper.
But he said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone,
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone;
And I hollered for a copper.
But he said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

I had a girl and she was a little lily,
Freddy came along and knocked her very silly;
And I hollered for a copper.
But he wouldn't run to stop her;
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone;
And I hollered for a copper.
But he wouldn't run to stop her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

I forgot for to tell you her name was Mary Walker,
she wore de pants till she couldn't wear 'em shorter;
And I hollered for a copper.

But If said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye, my honey. I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey. I'm gone,
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone;
And I hollered for a copper,
But he said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

This funny little girl was a dandy little runner,
Her name was Belva Lockwood, but the White Home was a stunner,
And I hollered for a copper,
Bur. he said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone,
Good-bye. my honey, I'm gone;
And I hollered for a copper,
But he said, he couldn't stop her;
Good-bye, my honey, I'm gone.

I know a man and he tried to coin a dollar.
His name is Uncle Sam. and he ought to get a collar,
For it wasn't worth a dollar.
And the ninety cents was holler;
Good-bye, my children, I'm done.

Chorus.
Good-bye, my children, I'm done.
Good-bye, ray children, I'm done ;
For It wasn't worth a dollar.
And ninety cents was holler;
Good-bye, my children, I'm done.
