Stephen Foster, 1849

Oh! ladies don't you wonder
When I again appear:
I've just been ober yonder
To see my Dolcy dear;
For Dolcy steps so lightly
Among de bricks and stone,
Her eyes dey shine so brightly
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jones!
Chorus:
Bye, bye my darling!
Sleep to de rattle ob de bones!
Slumber till morning,
My lubbly Dolcy Jones!
2. Oh! when I go a courting
I ride thr'o mud and rain:
I leabe de old hoss snorting
At de corner ob de lane.
I find my Dolcy weeping,
And charm her wid de bones,
Bye'n bye I leabe her sleeping,
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jones!
Chorus:

3. I went up town dis morning
To sing a little song;
Miss Dolcy send me warning
To bring my boots along;
For de yard is paved wid cinder,
And de house is built ob stones
And a head is at de window,
Oh! dadda, D' D' Dolcy Jones!
Chorus:
