Away Down East

Away Down East

     Away down East, away down West
     Away down Alabama:
     The only girl that I love best
     Her name is Susy Anna.

     I took her to a ball one night
     And sat her down to supper:
     The table fell and she fell too
     And stuck her nose in the butter.

     The butter, the butter
     The holy margarine
     Two black eyes and a jelly nose
     And the rest all painted green.

     Ritchie Singing Street (1964), 26; skipping song from
     Edinburgh, c. 1914.
