Me and Little Andy (Dolly Parton) Late one cold and stormy night I heard a dog a-barkin' Then I thought I heard somebody At my door a-knockin' I wondered who could be outside In such an awful storm And then I saw a little girl With a puppy in her arms. Before I could say a word She said "My name is Sandy, And this here is my puppy dog It's name is little Andy." Standin' in the bitter cold In just a ragged dress Then I asked her to come in And this is what she said. "Ain't cha got no gingerbread Ain't cha got no candy Ain't cha got an extra bed For me and little Andy?" Patty-cake the Baker's man My mommie ran away ag'in And we was all alone and didn't know what else to do I wonder if you'll let us stay with you. Giddy-up (*Charley) Horse, goin' to the mill Can we stay or not If you don't love us, no one will I promise we won't cry London Bridge is falling down My daddy's drunk ag'in in town We was all alone and didn't know what we should do We wondered if you'd let us stay with you. She was just a little girl Not more than six or seven But that night as they slept The angels took them both to heaven God knew that little Andy Would be lonesome with her gone Now Sandy and her puppy dog Won't ever be alone. "Ain't you got no gingerbread Ain't you got no candy Ain't you got an extra bed For me and little Andy?" GG apr97
