Reel 268 Item 3
Once I loved a fair young maiden And she thought the world of me, Till another man persuaded her To care no more for me.
I don’t want your greenback dollar I don’t want your watch and chain, All I want is your heart, darling Say you’ll take me back again.
Many an hour with you I rambled Down beside the deep blue sea,
If in your heart you love another In my grave I’d rather be.
Mama says we can never marry Papa says it can never do,
But if you ever learn to love me I will run away with you.
I was borned in East Virginia South Carolina I did go,
And I learned to love a maiden But her age I did not know.
