Doc Watson sang KATIE MOREY on his album "Home Again!", Vanguard LP VSD-79239, 1967; reissued as a CD 1996. Here is an excerpt transcribed from a couple of sound samples:
I told her that her sister Nan
That lived in yanders holler,
Had sent for her to come down there
And stay one half an hour.
CHORUS: Teer da loddle lank thee I A, I O.
As we was a-walkin' through the fields,
She squeezed my hand with fear, sir.
Said, "Mama, she has come this way,
And she catch us here, sir!
"If you will climb up yanders tree
And see if she is near, sir,
Then we'll go to that pretty grove,
And court and sport an hour."
