American Ballads and Folk Songs
Come, my love, and trip with me, Tis Monday morning early 5 First my hand and then my heart— >Tis true I love you dearly.
Charley he is pretty and sweet, Charley he's a dandy 5 Charley he can kiss the girls So complete and handy.
Over the water and over the lea, And over the water to Charley. Charley loves good wine and ale And Charley loves apple brandy.
I have got a sweet little wife, A wife of my own choosing 5 Hug her neat and kiss her sweet And go no more a-courting.
This game song, probably of English origin, is popular among the Negro school children of Texas. A teacher at Prairie View furnished words and music.
