Shallow Brown 2 Oh! it's shallow in the morning, Shallow, shallow brown! Just before the day is dawning, Shallow, shallow brown! Shallow brown's a bright mulatter, And she hails from Cincinatter! Come and put me clothes in order, For me packet sails tomorrow! I am bound away to leave ye, And and never will deceive ye. How I long to look upon ye, And to spend me money on ye. Oh, me packet sails tomorrow, And I'll leave ye with much sorrow. In the cradle lies me baby, I don't want no other lady. To leave my wife & baby grieves me, `tis a pain for me to leave ye. Be up on the pier to greet me, With fond kisses I will greet thee. Oh, we're goin' away tomorrow, Bound away tomorrow. Tune from Roll and Go, Colcord JY
