Reel 313, Item 1
I fell in love with a blue-eyed boy And he in love with me,
But he got struck on another girl And turned his back on me.
With love let him go, God bless him He’s mine wherever he may be,
He'll search this wide world over And never find a girl like me.
He promised he never would forsake me And never would leave me alone,
But now he's gone and left me poor girl Without a home.
If I had minded mother I would not been here today But I was young and foolish And I wanted to have my way.
If I had the wings of a little dove I’d fly across the sea.
I’d light in the arms of the blue-eyed boy Whose love has gone back on me.
Oh! girls you had better stay single And see what pleasure you can For you don’t know what trouble means Till you tie yourself down to a man.
