Flat Rock Ballads - Carl Sandburg

Showers of Dollars || Get the Money || In De Winter Time || I Could Not Find My Baby-O

Showers of Dollars

Showers of dollars
Showers of dollars we need
Dimes, nickles, pennies, they all help
But showers of dollars we plea.

Get the Money

It makes no difference where you are
get the mooo....ney
It makes no difference where you are
my hooo...ney

A nickle is a nickle and a dime is a dime
A dollar is a dollar, most any old time

It makes no difference where you are
get the mooo..ney.


In de Vinter Time

In de Vinter, in de Vinter time
When de vind blows on de vindow pane
And de vomen in de vaudeville
ride de velocipede in de vestibule
aa vomens . ..aaa mens

In de Vinter, in de Vinter time
When de vind blows on de vindow pane
And de vomen in de vaudeville
ride de velocipede in de vestibule
aaa vemens aaaa . . .mens


I Could Not Find My Baby-O

I left my darling lying here, lying here, lying here
I left my darling lying here, while I went to gather blayberries

I found the trail of the yellow fawn, yellow fawn, yellow fawn,
I found the trail of the yellow fawn, but I could not find my baby-o

I found the wee brown otter's track, otter's track, otter's track,
I found the wee brown otter's track, but I could not find my baby-o

I found the trail of the mountain mist, mountain mist, mountain mist,
I found the trail of the mountain mist, but I could not find my baby-o

Oh, rove and rove And gorie o gor, gorie o gor, gorie o gor,
Oh, rove and rove And gorie o gor, but I could not find my baby-o
