Thread Name: Origins: Rockingham Whiskey / Rockingham Cindy
Subject: Lyr Add: ROCKY ROAD CINDY
I couldn't find Uncle Dave Macon's version, but there are lyrics with another title.

ROCKY ROAD CINDY. AKA and see "I Get My Whiskey from Rockingham." Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, north Georgia. A Major. Standard. AAB. Source for notated version: Jay Ungar (New York) [Kuntz].
Where'd you get your whiskey, where'd you get your dram?
I got it from a little girl way down in Rockingham.
Rocky Road Cindy, rocky road to town,
Rocky Road Cindy, way down in Rockingham.
I went down to Rockingham, I did not go to stay,
I fell in love with a pretty girl and I could not get away.
Lips as red as a red rose, her hair was huckleberry brown,
The sweetest girl I ever saw, way down in Rockingham.
