Pathos
My Pretty Quadroon

O, who was as happy as I
She'd a brow like the blossoming pea
and the light of her violet blue eye
was shown on a darky like me.

Her face was exceedingly fair,
She'd a cheek like the wild rose of June
and the ringlets of her dark glossy hair was the
pride of my pretty Quadroon.

My pretty Quadroon,
my flower that faded so soon
My heart like the strings of my banjo
was broke for my Pretty Quadroon.
