Corrine, Corrina    (1926)

Corrine, Corrina, where you been so long?
Corrine, Corrina, where you been so long?
I ain't been no loving since you been gone

Corrine, Corinna, where'd you stay last night?
Corrine, Corinna, where'd you stay last night?
Come in this morning, sun was shining bright

I met Corrina way across the sea
I met Corrina way across the sea
She wouldn't write no letter, she didn't care for me

Corrine, Corrina, what you're gonna do
Corrine, Corrina, what you're gonna do
Just a little bit of lovin' let your heart be true

I love Corrina, tell her what I do
I love Corrina, tell her what I do
Just a little bit of lovin' let your heart be true

Corrine, Corrina you're a pal of mine
Corrine, Corrina you're a pal of mine
Now she left me walkin', tears are rollin' and cryin'

Corrine, Corrina, what's the matter now?
Corrine, Corrina, what's the matter now?
You wouldn't write no letter, you didn't love me no how

Good-bye, Corrina, it's fare you well
Good-bye, Corrina, it's fare you well
When I'll came back, can't anyone tell
