Just Folks - The Music of Ordinary People
By Toni Lee Robinson
Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding.
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.
Yankee doodle, keep it up!
Yankee doodle dandy.
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.
There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men.
I guess there was a million.
In London town where I was born,
And where I got my learning,
Sweet William Green took to his bed,
For love of Barbara Allen.
So slowly, slowly she came up
And slowly she came nigh him.
And all she said when she there came
"Young man, I think you're dyin'."
"Oh, mother, mother make my bed,
Oh, make it long and narrow!
Sweet William died for love today,
I'll die for him tomorrow."
They buried her by the old church tower,
Him they laid beside her.
And from her grave grew a red, red rose,
And from his grave a briar.
They grew to top the old church tower,
They could not grow no higher.
And there they twined in a true lover's knot,
Red rose around the briar.
