Dolce Jones (OT2003-3001-003)



[MacArthur prompts Farrington to state biographical information]

Bye-bye my Dolce,
Sleep dry to the bones
Slumber til morning
My lovely Dolce Jones

One night when I go courting
I ride through mud and rain
I leave my horse a-snorting
At the corner of the lane

I find my Dolce weeping
[unintelligible]
I leave my Dolce sleeping
My lovely Dolce Jones

Bye-bye my Dolce,
Sleep dry to the bones
Slumber til morning
My lovely Dolce Jones
