My Girl Back Home lyrics

My Girl Back Home

My Girl Back Home
I almost forgot
A blue eyed kid
I liked her a lot
We got engaged both families were glad
and I was told by my uncle and dad
that if I was clever and able
they'd make me a part of the partnership
and cable

How far away
Philadelphia P.A
Princeton N.J.
How far are they?

From Coconut palms
and banyan trees
and coral sands
and Tonkinese

How far away
Little Rock A.R.K?

Princeton N.J
How far are they?

How far are they?

Nellie and Cable:
From Cocunut palms
and banyan trees
and coral sands
and Tonkinese
