" I Went to See My Pretty Little Girl"
I went to see my pretty l i t t l e girl,
She looked so neat and fine,
Every time I looked at her,
Oh, I wisht that girl was mine,
Oh, I wisht that girl was mine.
Spoken: I stayed with her a l l day
And when I went to go away*
I tuk her by the l i l y white hand
And I led her to the door.
And the answer that she give me,
You cain't come no more,
Oh, you cain't come no more.
A-bout three weeks after that,
I'm sure it was not four,
Tell she wrote to me a latter,
Oh, do come once more,
Oh, do come once more.
Spoken: I Hyerd old men say
That the fairest of the ladies
Would soon fade away,
Oh, she'll soon fade away.
*Fred explained that he had forgot some of this song, so he
made parts of i t . The made parts are spoken. Sister Suckie
(Mrs. Briscoe) added the following parts of the song:
I put my arms around her neck
And give her kisses four,
Oh, I give her kisses four.
"I guess that pleased her"
And I asked her i f I couldn't come
To see her once more,
And the answer that she give me
No, you cain't come no more,
No, you cain't come no more.
"an' nat made me f e e l sad."
