("Bonnie Blue Eyes")

I've come back, Bonnie Blue Eyes.
I've come back, Bonnie, don't cry.
I've come to stay and never to stray
From my little Bonnie Blue Eyes.

Hush, little Bonnie, don't cry
You're my little Bonnie Blue eyes.
You're mine, you're mine to love all the time;
You're my little Bonnie Blue Eyes.

The moon was shinin' last night.
You were many miles from my sight.
As the train rolled on, I was thinkin' of home
And my little Bonnie Blue Eyes.

The train was on the fly,
I watched the midnight sky,
From the break of dawn and the hills of home,
And my little Bonnie Blue Eyes.

Little Bonnie, I'm back on time.
You promised that you would be mine;
You would marry your Jack, and I have come back
To claim my Bonnie Blue Eyes.

P. 10, with musical score. Sung by Ruby Vass, VA, 1959.
In Texas, known as "Goodbye, Little Birdie, Goodbye."

Herbert Shellans, 1968, "Folk Songs of the Blue Ridge Mountains," Oak Publications.
