Down on the levee, levee so low
Late in the evening, hear the train blow
Hear the train blow, love, hear the train blow
Late in the evening hear the train blow.
Roses love sunshine, violets love dew Angels in heaven know I love you Write me a letter, send it by mail Send it in care of Birmingham Jail.
Birmingham Jail, love, Birmingham Jail Send it in care of Birmingham Jail Bessie, my darling, Bessie, my dear Bessie, I love you, goodness I do.
Down in the meadow, down on my knees Praying to heaven to give my heart ease Good is the King—one pining for love Kiss me once more love then I must go.
