Title Fallen Leaf - Mammy's Little Alabama Coon
Description MT.TJW LEAF Far beyond the lonely prairie where the noble forest lies, Dwelt the fairest Indian maiden ever seen by mortal eyes. She, whose eyes were like the sunbeams, Daughter of a warrior chief Sought to cheer their home in Autumn And they called her, "Eallen Leaf." 'Cross that prairie waste there traveled, all alone one summers day Came a hunter lone and weary from the long and lonesome w^r. Weeks went by but still he lingered. "Gentle, Fallen Leaf," he cried. And with looks of love she promised soon to be his woodland bride. Then one summer's day he wandered "cross the prairie wste alone , Long she watched and long she waited but his fete ves n&s: latwn. With the summer's leaf she wittered. Witti the autum leaf fedied. And they closed her eyes in slumber by theriwrfe flowing sHe. Chorus Fallen Leaf, the breezes whisper of thy spirit "s early flight And within that lonely wigwam there's a wail of woe tonight.
