Darling Nelly Grey
(Flickan i Peru)

				T&M: R.B.Handy

There's a low green valley on the old Kentucky shore,
where I've whil'd many happy hours away.
A-sittin' and a-singin' by the little cottage door,
where dwelt my lovely Nellie Gray.

	Oh! My poor Nelly Gray,
	they have taken you away,
	and I'll never see my darlin' any more.
	I am sittin' by the river,
	and I'm weepin' all the day,
	for you've gone from the old Kentucky shore.

 One night I went to see her, but she's gone the neighbours say,
 the white man bound her with his chain.
 They have taken her to Georgia for to wear her life away,
 as she toils in the cotton and the cane.

	 Oh! My poor...............

 My eyes are gettin' blinded and I cannot see her way,
 Hark! There's somebody knocking at the door.
 Oh! I hear the angels callin' and I see my Nellie Gray,
 farewell to the old Kentucky shore.

	 Oh! My poor...............
