Miss Liza Jane.

I went upon the mountain.
Gave my horn a blow
Heard Miss Liza callin’
“Yonder comes my beau.”

Chorus:
Oh! Miss Liza, poor gal’.
Oh! Miss Liza Jane !
Oh! Miss Liza, poor gal
Ridin’ on a train.

I asked my gal to marry me
She said, “Aint you ashamed?”
Stuck my head through the crack of the fence
And kissed my Liza Jane.

I went up on the mountain
To cut some sugar cane
Every stalk I cut down
Taste like Liza Jane.

I’ve traveled on a steam boat
I’ve traveled on a train
But when I get married, I’ll marry Liza Jane.


I went to see Miss Liza Jane
I had to go a sneakin’
I started to kiss her in the mouth
And her doggone nose was leakin’.
