Finger Ring

Finger Ring

   Finger ring, my darling, finger ring my dear
   If I had a finger ring, I'd go away from here
   Finger ring, my darling, finger ring, my dear
   If I had a finger ring, I'd go away from here

Had a banjo made of gold, tuned it up so fine
Only song that it would play, I wish that gal was mine
                              (was trouble on my mind)

Wish I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew
I'd stitch my true love to my side and down the road I'd go

Wish I had a pumpkin shell to put my true love in
Take her out and kiss her twice, then put her back again

Peaches in the summertime, apples in the fall
If I can't have the one I want, I want no one at all

Days are getting longer now, nights are not so cold
Goin' to see my own true love before I get too old

Squirrel up a 'simmon tree, possum up a gum
Never was a pretty girl but yet I loved her some

Wish I had a great big horse, corn to feed him on
Pretty girl to stay at home and feed him when I'm gone
     First heard from Ed Trickett. You have to pronounce it
carefully. JN
     A variation of Trouble on My Mind RG
