DARLING COREY
(Monroe Brothers, 1936)

Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow
Dig a hole in the cold, cold ground
Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow
They're gonna lay darling Corey down

Well, the last time I saw darling Corey
On the banks of the deep blue sea
Two pistols around her body
And a banjo on her knee

Wake up, wake up, darling Corey
And go get me my gun
I ain't no man for trouble
But I'll die before I'll run

Wake up, wake up, darling Corey
What makes you sleep so sound
The highway robbers are coming
They're gonna tear your playhouse down
