O, Who Will Shoe your Pretty Little Foot

Cat. #0131 (MFH #684) - As sung by Mrs. Oliva Hauser, Fayettville, Arkansas on June 21, 1958

VERSE 1
I am going away to leave you love
I am going away for awhile
But I'll return to you some day
If I go ten thousand miles
O, who will shoe your pretty little feet
Who will glove your hand
And who will kiss your red rosy cheeks
When I'm in a far off land

CHORUS:
Th storms are on th ocean
Th heavens may cease to be
This world would lose its motion, love
If I prove false to thee

VERSE 2
Mother will shoe my pretty little feet
Father will glove my hand
An' you may kiss my red rosy cheeks
When you return again
Did you ever see th mourning dove
Fly'n from vine to vine
He's mourning for his own true love
Just like I mourn for mine
