This is the original of the tune so often heard played in old time music circles, it's interesting to note the differences between this and todays version.
CHOR: Angelina Baker, Angelina Baker x2

Angelina Baker lives
On the village green
The way the I love her
Beats all to be seen.

2. Angelina Baker,
Her age is forty-three
I gave her candy by the peck,
But she won't marry me.
3. She won't do the bakin',
Because she is too stout
She makes cookies by the peck
And throws the coffee out.

4. The last time I saw her,
It was at the county fair
Her daddy chased me halfway home,
And told me to stay there.

5. Angelina taught me to weep,
And she taught me to moan
Angelina taught me to weep
And play on the old jawbone.
