Black Davey come running on back, 
Whistlen' loud and merry, 
Made the woods round him ring, 
And he charmed the heart of a lady, 
Charmed the heart of a lady. 

"How old are you my pretty little miss?", 
"How old are you my honey?", 
She answered with a loving smile, 
"I'll be sixteen come sunday", 
Said "ill be sixteen come sunday". 

"Come and go with me, my pretty little miss 
Come and go with me, my honey 
I'll take you where the grass grows green 
You never will want for money" 
Said, "You never will want for money 

"Pull off, pull off your long, blue gloves 
Made of Spanish leather 
Give to me your lily-white hand 
And we'll ride off together" 
Said, "We'll ride off together" 

Well, she pulled off her long, blue gloves 
Made of Spanish leather 
And gave to him her lily-white hand 
And bid fairwell forever 
And they both rode off together 

Well, late last night the boss came home 
Inquiring about his lady 
The servant spoke before she thought 
"She been with Black Jack Davey 
Rode off with Black Jack Davey" 

"Come on, come on my coal-black horse 
You're speedier than the gray 
I'll ride all day and I'll ride all night 
And I'll overtake my lady 
Yeah, I'll overtake my lady" 

Well, he rode all night 'til the broad daylight 
'Til he came to a river ragin' 
And there he spied his darlin' bride 
In the arms of Black Jack Davey 
Wrapped up with Black Jack Davey. 

Would you forsake your house and home? 
Would you forsake your baby? 
Would you forsake your husband, too 
To go with Black Jack Davey? 
Run off with Black Jack Davey? 

Yes, I'd forsake my house and home 
And I'd forsake my baby 
And I'd forsake my husband too 
To go with Black Jack Davey 
I'm in love with Black Jack Davey 

Last night I slept on a feather bed 
Between my husband and baby 
And tonight I lay on the river banks 
In the arms of Black Jack Davey 
I'm in love with Black Jack Davey
