She went upstairs to make her bed
And not a word to her mother said
Her mother, she went upstairs too
Saying, "Daughter, oh, daughter, what's troubling you?"

"Oh, mother, dear, I cannot tell
It's that railroad boy that I love so well
He's courted me my life away
And now at home he will not stay"

"There is a place in London town
That railroad boy goes and sits down
He takes a strange girl on his knee
And he tells to her what he won't tell me"

Her father, he came home from work
Sayin', "Where's my daughter, she seems so hurt"
He went upstairs to give her hope
An' he found her hangin' by a rope

He took a knife and he cut her down
And on her bosom these words he found
"Go dig my grave, both wide and deep
Put a marble stone at my head and feet
And at my breast put a white-snow dove
To tell the world that I died of love"
