AnneMC Lyr Req: Now She's Gone (from Jim Kweskin) (20) ADD: Let Him Go, Let Him Tarry 30 Jun 09

Is it a version of this one ??


(This version, or something much like it, was popular in England
in the 1940`s --- Gracie Fields recorded it.

cho: Let him go, let him tarry, let him sink or let him swim;
He don`t care for me, and I`m sure I don`t for him
He can go and find another, and I hope she`ll bring him joy
For I`m goin` to marry a far nicer boy.

Farewell to cold winter, now that summer`s come at last;
Nothing have I gained, but my true love I have lost.
I`ll sing and I`ll be happy like a bird upon the tree
For since he deceived me, I care no more for he.


He wrote me a letter saying he was very bad,
I sent him back an answer saying I was very glad.
He wrote me another saying he was well and strong,
But I care no more for him than the ground he walks upon.


Some of his friends had a good kind wish for me,
Others of his friends, they could hang me from a tree;
But soon I`ll let them see my love, and soon I`ll let them know
That I can get a new sweetheart on any ground I go.


He can go to his old mother,now, and set her mind at ease,
For she`s a mean old woman, and very hard to please,
It`s slighting me and talking ill is all she`s ever done
Since I was courtin` her great big ugly son.
