Patches Lyrics

Down by the river that flows by the coal yard's stand
Wooden houses with shutters torn down
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches
Patches my darling of old Shantytown

We planned to marry when June brought the summer
I couldn?t wait to make Patches my bride
Now I don?t see how that ever can happen
My folks say no and my heart breaks inside

Patches oh what can I do?
I swear, I?ll always love you
But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace
So my folks won?t let me love you

Each night I cry as I think of that Shanty and pretty patches
There watching the door
She doesn?t know that I can?t come to see her
Patches must think that I love her no more

I hear a neighbor telling my father
He says, a girl name of Patches was found floating face down
In that dirty old river that flows by the coal yards
In old Shantytown

Patches oh what can I do?
I swear, I?ll always love you
It may not be right but I?ll join you tonight
Patches I?m coming to you
