lyrics

I love the girl called Cabbage Rose
I'll never let her cry
And if I lose my Cabbage Rose
I think that I will die
Yes, I think that I will die

I've traveled all the land and sea
I've rambled here and there
I've climbed the mountain tops
And I have roamed without a care
But now I've found my hobo queen
And never will I stray
I will belong to Cabbage Rose
until my dying day

I'll shine the shoes upon your feet
I'll fix your leakin' sole
I'll sing a song or play a tune
To keep stew inside my bowl
Give me work and do be kind
or I'll have to move along
And I will lose the Cabbage Rose
for whom I wrote this song

Cabbage Rose is tall and fair
Her hair is black as night
Her cheeks are sweet and pink
Her eyes are like two pennies bright
Her voice is like a turtledove
a-callin' out my name
Now I have met my Cabbage Rose
I'll never be the same

I love the girl called Cabbage Rose
I'll never let her cry
And if I lose my Cabbage Rose
I think that I will die
Yes, I think that I will die
I think that I will die
Yes, I know that I will die
