Noah's Dove

Traditional, recorded on Grapevine, collected from a woman named Dink by John Lomax in 1908.

If I had wings, like Noah's Dove,
I'd fly up the river, to the one I love.
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well. 

I got a man, he's long and tall,
Moves his body like a cannon ball.
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well. 

'Member one night, a-drizzlin' rain,
Around my heart, I felt a pain.
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well. 

One of these days, it won't be long,
You'll call my name, and I'll be gone.
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well. 

If I had listened, what my mama said,
I'd be home, now, in mama's bed.
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well. 

If I had wings, like Noah's Dove, 
I'd fly up the river, to the one I love. 
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well.
