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.
