Title My Pretty Quardoon
Description MY PR2TTY QUADROON Oh I'll ne'er forget when I met Sweet Cora Ky Pretty Quadroon, I see her dear eyes shining yet, As we vowed to be true 'neath the moon, Her form was exceedingly fair And her cheeks like the wild-rose in June And the ring-lets of dark glossy hair Were the curls of my pretty Quadroon. So happy were we for awhile Like two love birds we dwelt 'mid the bow'rs« And the sweetness of Cora's bright smile, Seem'd to rival the blush of the flow'rs. But happiness fades like the rose, And before the next full of the moon, The grim reaper knocked on our door, And took Cora, my pretty quadroon. Farewell to Kentucky's green shade, Farewell to the green clover fields, '•/here Cora and 1 often strayed, Ky sorrow will soon be forgot, And my heart will find rest in the tomb, 3ut my spirit will fly to the spot, And watch o'er my Pretty Quadroon. Chorus Oh my pretty Quadroon My flower that faded too soon My heart's like the strings on my banjo All broke for my pretty Quadroon My heart's like the strings on my banjo All broke for my pretty quadroon* Submitted by Vida Reeae Sorensen, Spring City, Utah. -as-
