She's my curly headed baby
Used to sit on Mommas knee
She's my curly headed baby
She's from sunny Tennessee

I have loved her since I met her
More than an tongue can tell
If she ever proves false hearted
I can never say farewell

I am funny about the women
For I'll tell you what they'll do
They'll be crying over your shoulder
And flirtin with another too

She's my curly headed baby
I don't care what people say
If she leaves me for another
That well be her burying day

I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't never shine
Than of her to be some others darlin
When she promised ot be mine
