Here's a recording of Cindy in the Meadows:

I've tried to transcribe it, need some help. Corrections please. There are only a few words that I can't get.

"Cindy In The Meadows" by "Samantha Bumgarner & Eva Jones (or Davis)"
Columbia 167 - D Recorded: April 1, 1924 Issued: July 1924


I asked her if she loved me,
She said she loved me some.
I throwed my arms around her
Like a (?) around a (?)
Everything's all right Cindy

Cindy in the summertime,
Cindy in the fall
If I don't get Cindy
I'll not marry at all
Everything's all right Cindy

When I went to see her,
She's standing in the door
With her shoes and stockings in her hand
And her feet all over the floor
Everything's all right Cindy.


? Great big sweet potato
While running in the sand
She swore I was the biggest fool
That lived in Dixon land
Everything's all right Cindy.


When I went to see her
She wrung her hands and cried
When I went I went to leave her
She passed away and died.
Everything's all right Cindy.
