Darling Cloe

In the old Palmetto states
where the sweet magnolia blooms
And the pickninna Darkies
used to hoe
There is one I long to see
She was always true to me
And I'm going home to see
my Darling Chloe

Cho-
Darling Chloe oh Darling Chloe
Then your sweet face I soon
shall see I know,
It is twenty yrs- or more
since I saw my darling Chloe
And I'm going home to see
my darling Chloe

This is all I can remember
of this and can't find it here
anywhere,
Love Mother
