Harrison Brady Go harness up my milk white steed My bonnie brown is not so speedy I'll ride all night and I'll ride all day Till I overtake my lady He rode as far as Pittsburgh, O And there he spied his lady With one arm around her baby, O And the other around her Brady O why did you leave your husband dear O why did you leave your baby O why did you leave your pretty little home To roam with Harrison Brady I never loved you in my life I neverloved your baby I married you against my will And I'll roam with Harrison Brady Last night I slept in my downy bed and in my arms my baby Tonight I'll sleep in the Pittsburgh jail In the arms of Harrison Brady sung by Lily Bell Dietrick at Morgantown WVa, 1944, collected by Samuel Bayard.
