Arkansas Sweetheart

Cat. #1382 (MFH #441) - As sung by Reba Dearmore, Gaithersberg, Maryland on December 31, 1971

Arkansas your great to me, my sweetheart
Now, I sing your praise th whole day long
Down among th pine trees she is waiting
Listen while I sing to her this song
My Arkansas sweetheart, I'm conin' to you
Nobody can cheer me, nobody but you
Th birds an' th flowers an' th love in your eyes
Are all that I want dear, for my paradise
I'll follow th bluebirds, what more can I do
My Arkansas sweetheart I'm coming to you
