Stephen Foster, 1851
Lubly Melinda, come now my dear,|
I'm waiting, I'm waiting for you.
Shut down de window, dry up de tear,
And walk wid me ober de dew.
|: Lubly Melinda, Melinda, Melinda,
My sweet Melinda May!
I could work in de field
And be happy all de day,
If you would only smile again,
My sweet Melinda May. :|
2. Laugh in de sunshine, weep in de rain,|
And walk wha de lily bud bloom,
Down in de meadow, ober de lane,
Oh! come, my Melinda lub, come.
3. Lubly Melinda is bright as de beam,
4. If I was a hero and people would fall
