  The Minnesota Hotel Tape: Home of Bonnie Beecher, Minneapolis MN - 22.dec.1961  

If i had wings like a Noah's dove
I'd fly the river to the one i love
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

If i had a man who was long an' tall
'd move his body like a cannon ball
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

Then one evenin' it was drizzlin' rain
By my heart i felt an achin' pain
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

As i wore my apron low
Couldn't keep you away from my door
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

Now my apron is up t my chin
You pass my door wish you never come in
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

Muddy water runs muddy and wild
Can't care a bloody for my unborn child
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.

Number 9 train done no harm
Number 9 train take my poor baby home
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well.

Fastest man i ever saw
Skid Missouri on the way to Arkansas
Fare thee well my honey, fare thee well.  up
