"Ole Tar River"


           
    1. Way down in North Car'lina,
On the banks of the Ole Tar River,
I go from there to Alabama,
For to see my ole Aunt Hannah.
   
   
2.
Now Nancy, I must leave you,
Do not let our parting grieve you,
Dance and sing, forget your sorrow,
I'll be back sometime tomorrow.
