Reel 341, Item 11
My Sweet Virgina Bride
Down on the Mississippi floating A long time I've traveled all the way All night the cotton woods are tooting I sang for my true love all the day.
There was a lady last night she died
Chorus Toll the bell for lonely Nell
My sweet Virgina bride
Down in the meadow among the clover I walked with my Nellie by my side Now all them happy days are over Farewell my sweer Virgina Bride.
