Instrumental verse
Oh the first time I saw Darling Corey She was standin' in the door She had her shoes and her stockings in her hand And her little bare feet on the floor Oh the next time I saw Darling Corey She was standin' by the banks of the sea she had a 44 strapped around her body And a banjo on her knee Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Dig a hole in the cold, cold ground Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Gonna lay Darling Corey down
Instrumental verse
Oh the last time I saw my Corey She had a wine glass in her hand She was drinkin' that sweet liquor With a low down gamblin' man Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Dig a hole in the cold, cold ground Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Gonna lay Darling Corey down Don't you hear those poor birds singin' Don't you hear that mournful sound? They're preachin' Corey's funeral In a lonesome graveyard ground Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Dig a hole in the cold, cold ground Dig a hole, dig a hole in the meadow Gonna lay Darling Corey down

Oh, I called her my own
Her hair was yellow and her eyes were sparkling And on her cheeks was a rosy red And on her breast she wore white lilies Oh, the tears I have shed My father said that I must not marry My mother said, "That'll never do" But, oh, kind miss, if you are willing Oh, I would run away with you
Solo over verse chords
'Cause when I'm awake, I'm a-dreaming about you When I'm asleep I'll take no rest Cause every moment seems like hours Oh, the pain lies in my breast Oh, must I go to Old Virginia All for your sake must I die Must I go, sad, broken-hearted Oh and darlin' say don't cry
Solo over verse chords
When that golden sun is shining On the top of calvary It's sometimes lower that you are thinking You must oft-times think of me
