LYRICS

I had a pretty daughter we lived all alone
Worked the fields together and made our self a home

I sent her off to school and rested in the shade
Had supper on the table and my bed already made
The women in the town showed her how to dress
I taught her about farming, in school she learned the rest

Pretty daughter don’t you love me or I’ll be left alone
There’s no one in the holler that I can call my own
I know some day a man will come and take you far away
And every morn’ since you was born I pray it ain’t today

Pretty daughter, Pretty daughter

I caught her in the woods with a boy from town
I took a pick axe to him and laid him right on down
The sheriff came a lookin’ bout noon the next day
By six o clock they locked him up and throw’d the key away

Pretty daughter don’t you love me or I’ll be left alone
There’s no one in the holler that I can call my own
I know some day a man will come and take you far away
And every morn’ since you was born I pray it ain’t today

Pretty daughter, Pretty daughter
