Black Jack David came runnin
through the woods,
and he sang so loud and gaily,
made the hills around him ring,
and he charmed the heart of a lady,
and he charmed the heart of a lady.

How old are you, my pretty little miss,
how old are you, my honey ?
She answered him with a silly little smile,
"I'll be sixteen next Sunday,
I'll be sixteen next Sunday."

Come go with me, my pretty little miss,
come go with, me my honey !
I'll take you across the deep blue sea,
for you never shall want for money,
where you never shall want for money.

and they both rode off together,
and they both rode off together.

Last night I lay on a warm feather bed,
beside my husband and baby.
Tonight I lay on the cold, cold ground,
by the side of Black Jack David,
by the side of Black Jack David.
