    (A Kentucky Mountain Ballad)

    "Where are you coming from, Loney Carter, "Said, Lord Jesus forguv your Taulbe;
    So airly over the snow? But he told me another word:
    And what's them pretties you got in your hand, He said it soft when he stooped and
    And where you aiming to go? kissed me.
    That were the last I heard."
    "Step in, Honey: Old Christmas morning
    I ain't got nothing much; Taulbe ain't to home this morning."
    Maybe a bite of sweetness and corn bread,
    A little ham meat and such. "I know that, Sally Anne,
    For I kilt him, coming down through
    "But come in, Honey! Sally Anne Barton's the meadow
    Hungering after your face. Where Taulbe kilt my man.
    Wait till I light my candle up:
    Set down! There's your old place. "I met him upon the meadow trace
    Where the moon were fainting fast,
    "Now where you been so airly this morning?" And I had my dead man's rifle gun
    "Graveyard, Sally Anne. And kilt him as he come past."
    Up by the trace in the salt lick meadows
    Where Taulbe kilt my man." "But I heard two shots."

    "Taulbe ain't to home this morning . . . ""Twas his was second:
    I can't scratch up a light:
    Dampness gets on the heads of the matches; He shot me 'fore he died:
    But I'll blow up the embers bright." You'll find us at daybreak, Sally
    Anne Barton:
    "Needn't trouble, I won't be stopping: I'm laying there dead at his side."
    Going a long ways still.?

    "You didn't see nothing, Sally Ann Barton?" By------ROY HELTON
    Up on the graveyard hill?"

    "Well, sperits do walk last night."

    "There were an elder bush a-blooming January 5, the date on which Christ-
    While the moon still give some light." mas was celebrated until about 1750,
    in some places in the South,
    "Yes, elder bushes, they bloom, Old Christmas, particularly in the mountain regions
    And critters kneel down in their straw, the tradition continued and was
    Anything else up in the graveyard?" called "Old Christmas!!"
    "One thing more I saw: SANG: Southern mountain word for Gin
    Seng. TRACE: a trail or footpath
    I saw my man with his head all bleeding PRETTIES: any sorttt of toy or decoration
    Where Taulbe's shot went through." USES: lives.
    "What did he say?"
    "He stooped and kissed me."
    "What did he say to you?"
