Her eyes beam'd bright as gold-dust, and her teeth
as white as snow, And when she rais'd her voice to sing 'twas sweeter
than de crow j And in her lemonading waltz dat lubly form was
seen, My fascinating heart did burn for pretty Katy Bean.
Chorus Oh 1 Katy, oh! Katy, &c.
Miss Katy's in Virginia now, as happy as can be, But bery soon she's coming back to lib in Tennessee; And when she does come back again we'll go upon
de green, And you will see a wedding wid myself and Katy
Chorus. Oh! Katy, oh ! Katy, &c.
Uncle Ned
The music, with piano-forte accompaniment, published by W. C. Peters, Louisville and Cincinnati.
I once knew a darkey, and his name was Uncle Ned,
0, he died long ago,—long ago; He had no wool on the top of his head,
The place whar de wool ought to grow.
Chorus. Lay down the shovel and the hoe ; Hang up the fiddle and the bow; Fo' no more work for poor old Ned, He's gone where the good darkies go.
