Little Mohee

As I went out walking upon a fine day
I got awful lonesome as the day passed away
I sat down a-musing, alone on the grass
When who should sit by me but a sweet Indian lass.

She sat down beside me and took hold of my hand
Said, `You sure be a stranger, and in a strange land.`
She asked me to marry and gave me her hand,
Said, `My pappy`s a chieftain all over this land.`

`My pappy`s a chieftain, and ruler be he
I`m his only daughter and my name is Mohee`
I answered and told her that it never could be
`Cause I had my own sweetheart in my own country.

I had my ain sweetheart, and I knew she loved me
Her heart was as true as any Mohee
So I said,`I must leave you and goodbye my dear
There`s wind in my canvas and home I must steer.`

At home with relations I tried for to see
But there wasn`t a one like my little Mohee,
And the girl I had trusted proved untrue to me
So I sailed o`er the ocean to my little Mohee.

Note: Ives says this derives from a bawdy sailor`s song `the
Indian Lass`. Mohee probably derives from Maumee. Or Maui. or
something. RG
From Burl Ives
