The White Stripes - Black Jack Davey.mp3
Black Davey come running on back, Whistlen' loud and merry,Made the woods round him ring, And he charmed the heart of a lady, Charmed the heart of a lady. "How old are you my pretty little miss?", "How old are you my honey?", She answered with a loving smile, "I'll be sixteen on sunday", Said "ill be sixteen on sunday"."Come and go with me, my pretty little miss Come and go with me, my honeyI'll take you where the grass grows green You never will want for money "Said, "You never will want for money "Pull off, pull off your long, blue gloves Made of Spanish leather Give to me your lily-white hand And we'll ride off together "Said, "We'll ride off together" Well, she pulled off her long, blue glovesMade of Spanish leatherAnd gave to him her lily-white handAnd bid fairwell foreverAnd they both rode off together Well, late last night the boss came home Inquiring about his lady The servant spoke before she thought "She been with Black Jack Davey Rode off with Black Jack Davey" "Come on, come on my coal-black horse You're speedier than the gray I'll ride all day and I'll ride all night And I'll over take my lady Yeah, I'll overtake my lady"Well, he rode all night 'til the broad daylight 'Til he came to a river ragin' And there he spied his darlin' bride In the arms of Black Jack Davey Wrapped up with Black Jack Davey. Would you forsake your house and home? Would you forsake your baby? Would you forsake your husband, too To go with Black Jack Davey? Run off with Black Jack Davey? Last night I slept on a feather bed Between my husband and baby And tonight I lay on the river banks In the arms of Black Jack Davey I'm in love with Black Jack Davey
