lyrics

A child’s fancy is a curious thing
When the days last longer than the black water breeze
In my thirteenth year my father fell
And I was all that was left for my mother to sell

And I’m oh –oh, I’m over due

Mr. Ames owned the tannery
My mother said a fine husband he’d be
An older man to hold my little hand
Dance me across to some promised land

William Wythe was an honest child
An easy manner and an open smile
Lived up the hollow on a poor man’s farm
And in a ‘manner of speech’ I fell to his charms

Tell my sisters, tell my brothers I’m gone
Say I’m sorry to my mother-in-law
It’s only money, only money that’s all
And I’m oh –oh, I’m over due
