Dickey Lee - Patches Lyrics

  • Down by the river that flows by the coal yards.
  • Stands wooden houses with shutters torn down
  • There lives a girl everybody calls Patches
  • Patches my darling of Old Shanty town
  • We plan to marry when June brought the summer
  • I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride
  • Now I don't see how that ever can happen
  • My folks say No, and my heart breaks inside
  • Patches oh what can I do
  • I swear I'll always love you
  • But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace
  • So my folks won't let me love you
  • Each night I cry as I think of that shanty
  • And pretty Patches there watching the door
  • She dosn't know that I can't come to see her
  • Patches must think that I love her no more
  • I hear a neighbor tellin my father
  • He said a girl name of Patches was found
  • Floating face down in that dirty old river
  • That flows by the coal yards in Old Shanty Town
  • Patches oh what can I do
  • I swear I'll always love you
  • It may not be right But I'll join you tonight
  • Patches I'm coming to you
