Come Love Come (OT2003-3001-002)



Down by the cornfield close to the mill
There lived a little colored girl, her name was Nancy Jill

She knew that I loved her, she knew it all along
I'm going to serenade her, this should be my song

Come, love, come, the boat lies low
She lies of the banks of the Ohio

Come, love, come, o come along with me
And I will take you back to old Tennessee [performer stumbles or re-records this line] sunny Tennessee

[Ends with interview containing biographical information]
