This is Andy's version of traditional song Over The River, but Roberts changed a little bit the lyrics. Anyone can help me to complete lyrics?

CHARLIE

Charlie's neatin', Charlie's sweetin', Charlie he's a dandy
Charlie he's the very lad who stole my stocking candy

chorus:
over the river to feed my sheep
over the river Charlie
over the river to feed my sheep
and measure up my barley

don't want your wheat don't want your cheat
and neither do I want your barley
but I'll take a little of the best you've got
to bake a cake for Charlie

chorus

my pretty little .......
........................
........................
........................

chorus

The lyrics that Andy Roberts sings are close to those printed in Singing Family of the Cumberlands
by Jean Ritchie (Lexington: University Press of Kentucky, 1955), page 60—so I'll give those first:


CHARLIE

1. Charlie's neat and Charlie's sweet
And Charlie he's a dandy.
Charlie he's the very lad
That stole my stripèd candy.

CHORUS: Over the river to feed my sheep,
And over the river, Charlie,
Over the river to feed my sheep
And to measure up my barley.

2. My pretty little pink, I once did think
I never could do without you.
Since I lost all hopes of you,
I care very little about you. CHORUS

3. Don't want your wheat, don't want your cheat,
And neither do I want your barley,
But I'll take a little of the best you got
To bake a cake for Charlie. CHORUS

Now here are the words you requested. I have boldfaced the words that are different from the previous version:


CHARLIE
As sung by Andy Roberts on "Urban Cowboy" (2012)

1. Charlie's neat and Charlie's sweet
And Charlie he's a dandy.
Charlie he's the very one
That stole my stripèd* candy.

CHORUS: Over the river to feed my sheep,
And over the river, Charlie,
Over the river to feed my sheep
And to measure up my barley.

2. Don't want your wheat, don't want your cheat,
And neither do I want your barley,
But I'll take a little of the best you've got
To bake a cake for Charlie. CHORUS

3. My pretty little thing, I scarce could think
That I could do without you.
But when I found it weren't no use,
I cared very little about you. CHORUS

REPEAT VERSE 1. CHORUS.


* I don't know what word or phrase he is singing here. It sounds like "strength of" but that makes no sense to me. I would stick with "stripèd" if I wanted to sing this song.

Hi Gio,

   If you're on face book at all, you can find Andy Roberts there.

Ok, thanks to Jim Dixon. Phil Cooper, Andy Roberts that intend me, is british folk-rock singer, not american bearded man.
