1.

Where, oh where is dear little Mary?
Where, oh where is dear little Mary?
Where, oh where is dear little Mary?
Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch.

       
   
2.

Come on boys, and let's go find her,
Come on boys, and let's go find her,
Come on boys, and let's go find her,
Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch.

       
    3. Pickin' up pawpaws put'n'em in the basket,
Pickin' up pawpaws put'n'em in the basket,
Pickin' up pawpaws put'n'em in the basket,
Way down yonder in the pawpaw patch.
