She had the tune right but couldn't quite remember all the words. Thanks for the info. In most cases, the sheet music cover is shown along with the text. An excellent, well-thought-out website. Oh my darlin' Nellie Gray kicked the bucket yesterday That cross eyed girl that lived up on the hill She took strychnine and died now I hope she's satisfied 'cause she done the whole damn thing against my will.
Now that she has gone to rest I'll fulfill her last request I'll plant a bunch of onions on her grave So when I'm passin' by I can pucker up and cry Cause them God damn things they always make me rave. Lost my cookie somehow. When the moon had climbed the mountain and the stars were shining too.
Then I'd take my darling Nelly Gray, And we'd float down the river in my little red canoe, While my banjo sweetly I would play. One night I went to see her, but "She's gone! The white man bound her with his chain; They have taken her to Georgia for to wear her life away, As she toils in the cotton and the cane.
My canoe is under water, and my banjo is unstrung; I'm tired of living any more; My eyes shall look downward, and my song shall be unsung While I stay on the old Kentucky shore. My eyes are getting blinded, and I cannot see my way. I hear the angels calling, and I see my Nelly Gray. Farewell to the old Kentucky shore. Chorus Oh, my darling Nelly Gray, up in heaven there they say, That they'll never take you from me any more.
