NOBODYS DARLIN' BUT MINE


Come sit by my side little darling
Come lay your cool hand on my brow
Promise me that you will never
Be nobody's darling but mine

Nobody's darling but mine love
Be honest, be faithful, be kind
Promise me that you will never
Be nobody's darling but mine

You're as sweet as the flowers of springtime
You're as pure as the dew from the rose
I'd rather be somebody's darling
Than a poor boy that nobody knows

My mother is dead and in heaven
My daddy has gone down below
Sister has gone to meet mother
And where I'll go nobody knows

Goodbye, goodbye little darling
I'm leaving this cold world behind
Promise me that you will never
Be nobody's darling but mine
