about

Also known as Dinks' Song, this is an old time lament first collected by Alan Lomax in Texas

lyrics

If I had wings like Noah's dove
I'd fly the river to the one I love
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

I once had a man, and he was long and tall
He moved his body like a cannon ball
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

I once wore my apron low
Cos you've been coming around my door
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

And now I wear my apron way up to my chin
You pass my door but you never come in
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Remember one evening, it was pouring rain
And in my heart there was an aching pain
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Muddy river runs muddy and wild
You don't care the bloody for my unborn child
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well
