Cindy You ought to see my Cindy She lives away down south She's so sweet that honeybees Swarm about her mouth. cho: Get along home, Cindy Cindy Get along home. Get along home, Cindy Cindy I'll marry you some day. (I'm a-gonna leave you now) Cindy in the summertime Cindy in the fall If I can't have Cindy all the time Have no one at all. Cindy is a pretty girl Cindy is a peach; Threw her arms around my neck Hung on like a leach. Cindy got religion, Tell you what she done: Walked up to the minister Chawed her chewin' gum. Cindy got religion, She had it once before When she heered my old banjo She's the first one on the floor. Cindy got religion She really went to town; Got so full of glory, Lord, Shook her stockin's down. If I had a pretty gal I'd put her on a shelf; Ev'ry time she smiled at me, I'd jump right up myself. Cindy had one blue eye She also had one brown One eye looked in the country The other one looked in town Wish I was an apple Hangin on a tree An' every time my Cindy passed She'd take a bite o' me Wish I had a needle and thread Wish that I could sew I'd sew that gal to my coat tails And down the road we'd go alt chorus: Git along home, Cindy Git along home to stay Git along home, Cindy One more night 'n' day alt cho: It's kiss me, gal Kiss me once again. Oh, it's kiss me, gal All night long. Note: a typical banjo tune structure: good tune, good chorus and a bunch of floaters. RG RG
