DARLING NELLY GRAY
There`s a low green valley by the old Kentucky shore
Where we`ve whiled many happy hours away,
A-sitting and a-singing by the little cottage door,
Where lived my darling Nelly Giag.
cho: Oh my poor Nelly Gray, they have taken you away
And I`ll never see my darling any more.
I`m a-sitting by the river and I`m weeping all the day
For you`re gone from the old Kentucky shore.
One night I went to see her but `she`s gone` the neighbors say,
The white man bound her with his chain,
They have taken her to Georgia to wear her life away,
As she toils in the cotton and the cane.
Note: tune is a close relative of Maggie May: Anyone know which
came first? RG
