Lyris posted by Stewie are HERE. Printed music (with no chords) is in W.K. McNeil, Southern Folk Ballads, vol. II (August House, 1988, p. 172) and in Roger D. Abrahams & Geroge Foss, Anglo-American Folksong Style (Prentice-Hall, 1968, p. 122).

The remark in my last post was for the ill-mannered lout who makes requests by leaving blank posts. Piss on you.

The request was made in 2002. Somehow, I don't think the OP is coming back.

This was my great 4x grandfather who wrote this song Little Bessie and wrote The Orphan Girl. I have genealogy papers that tell how I'm related to him.
