Doreatha
(George McConnell)
Taken from the Beanland website


Young man come 'round, said he's from Yazoo County
Said he's going to Vicksburg to court a flower
Well he bought some diamonds and he bought a ring,
And he swore to God that he would do anything
Yeah, because Doreatha, she's got her own little way

Well his brothers told him and his sisters told him too
That little girl she's got the way to put a man down pretty cruel
But he would not listen, Lord he couldn't care
Ever since he caught the sight of her long dark hair
He said, "Doreatha, I believe I love ya"

Well, he passed and got on down and he went looking for her pa
He said "Mister, sure I've come to give your girl a call"
Well, the man looked at the boy cause it was already known
That the little girl was crazy and he said "Good luck, son"
Yeah, because Doreatha, she's got her own little way

Went around and found her there, she was humming a tune on the front step
And the way that the sunlight seemed to catch her, snatched up his breath
She sang a tune that was true and sweet
And he couldn't forget it even when he was out on his feet
Yeah, because Doreatha, she could really sing

Well, he come around and sat down and said "Let's go and take a walk"
She said "By the way I've got some things that can't be bought"
Well, he ran and ran and he leaped and lunged
But he couldn't catch her no, not 'til the mornin'
Because Doreatha, she could really move
