Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Pretty Quadroon
Subject: Lyr Add: MY PRETTY QUADROON
The version I learned as a small boy is only slightly different in verses one and two. However, there is a third verse which goes:

Farewell to Kentucky's green hills
Farewell to Kentucky's green braes
Farewell to the green grassy fields
Where Cora and I often strayed
To this old world I'll soon say farewell
My heart will find rest in the tomb
But my spirit will fly to the spot
And watch over my pretty quadroon.
