VP_001246 Verse 1For a little Southern cabin hid away among the pines, Mah heart am burning... Forever yearning; Where the rose 'mid honeysuckle and the jessamine entwines, For there's mah Eva... Mah dusky maid... Ev'ry evening when the mocking bird am brooding on her nest, And stars a gleaming... The world a dreaming, To that cabin with mah banjo and arrayed in all mah best, I goes to give her... this serenade... Chorus 1Eva!.. Eva!.. You're the sweetest yaller gal I ever did see; Sweeter to me than honey from the bee. Eva!.. Eva!.. Mah heart am palpitatin' all the time that I'se a waitin' for mah Eva!... Verse 2As I softly comes a stealing to that little cabin door, I hear her singing... Her laughter ringing; And mah footstep brings an echo tripping swift across the floor, To give a greeting... For me alone... That this gent have got the heart complaint I'se very much afraid, Beyond all curing... I am enduring, Tho' a waking or a sleeping I'se a dreaming of that maid, For she has promised... to be mah own...
