Thread Name: Origins: Darling Nellie Gray
Subject: RE: Darling Nellie Gray: song
There was a parody that I heard as a boy...

Oh my darlin' Nellie Gray kicked the bucket yesterday
That cross eyed girl that lived up on the hill
She took strychnine and died now I hope she's satisfied
'cause she done the whole damn thing against my will.

Now that she has gone to rest I'll fulfill her last request
I'll plant a bunch of onions on her grave
So when I'm passin' by I can pucker up and cry
Cause them God damn things they always make me rave.
