[Betsy Baker]

 

The birds did sing and so did I

As I tripped over the acre

I never knew what 'twas to sing (sigh?)

Till I saw Betsy Baker.

 

These words *vere given me by Louie Hooper

as the words which she was in the habit of

singing to the tune of "The Girl I left behind me".  

They are of course well known words of the song

Broken Token

I have a sweetheart of my own

 

I have a sweetheart of my own sir

Full seven long years he has been gone from me

and seven more I will wait for him

If he's living he will return and marry me

 

Seven long years make an alteration

Perhaps that he is either dead or drowned

for if he is living I love him dearly

and if he's dead I hope he's in Glory crowned

 

Up in his arms he did embrace her

He gave her kisses one, two, and three

saying I'm that poor young single sailor

Just come on shore love to marry thee

 

(189)

 

Lucy White & Louie Hooper, [Hambridge], April 13th 1904

 

Additional verse Louie Hooper Aug. 28. 1905:

 

Seven long years since he left the land

He took a gold ring from my hand

The ring was a token when he part from me

And the other lay rolling at the bottom of the sea
