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
