 ---Woody's Lyrics---

I don't want your greenback dollar
I don't want your silver change
All I want is your love darling
Won't you take me back again
Once you was my fond affection
and you thought this world of me
then you left me for another
in my grave I'd rather be
I don't want no greenback dollar
I don't want your silver change
All I wants your pretty little daughter
won't you take me back again
