I Went To The City

I went to the city
And there I did weep,
Men a-crowin’ like asses,
And livin’ like sheep.
Oh, can’t hold the han’ of my love!
Can’t hold her little white han’!

Yes, I went to the city,
And there I did bitterly cry,
Men out of touch with the Earth,
And with never a glance at the sky.
Oh, can’t hold the han’ of my love!
Can’t hold her pure little han’!
