Christy's plantation melodies.            65
They saw it was so very true,
They gave me Mary Blane. But now I wish they had her back,—
I want my Sukey Lane.
Chorus. Oh, Sukey, Sukey Lane, &c.
Nancy Shore.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by Vander
beek, New York.
Oh, come my boys and hark to me,
I've something fine to tell you all • To-morrow night is my birth-day,
I'm bound to have a. ball. The fiddles we'll have and the banjo too,
And the bones with their merry, merry click, ' As Nancy Shore is to be there;
Oh, Nancy Shore's a brick.
Chorus. Then she's the girl to dance with me,
Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, She's the girl to dance with me, Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la.
In the old barn behind the house,
Is where I'm going to have a dance, We'll all go in and take a jig
With pretty, pretty Nance; I've got a girl for Julius there,
As pretty a girl as ever was seen, And a black-eyed girl as is to dance
To Pompey's tamborine.
Chorus. Then she's the girl, &c.
We'll have ice cream and lemonade, And little cakes and something more,
And then, old boys, just think of this, We'll have our Nancy Shore; 6*
