Reel 336, Item 15
You Can't Lose Me, Charlie
I went out a-courtin' the other night,
I had a little courtin' that was out of sight,
Down my knees, my love it was a-tellin',
While my old gal's on the outside a-yellin'
Cause you can't lose me, Charlie,
Can't lose me, Charlie,
I knew she was a nigger
For she liked to cut a figger,
But hunh-unh, my baby
You can't lose me, indeed you can't.
Went out rowin' and my gal went too,
She stepped in the boat and the bottom fell through, Down in the river she gradually was a-sinkin'
And she grabbed me quick while I was a-thinkin' Refrain.
