Music: Rose of Alabamy

New, “old” track on my soundcloud! This time, an instrumental cover of one of the most beautiful and famous songs of its era, “Rose of Alabamy”!

Away from Mississippi’s vale
With my ole hat there for a sail
I crossed upon a cotton bale
To the Rose of Alabamy.
Oh brown Rosey,
Rose of Alabamy,
The sweet tobacco posey
Is the Rose of Alabamy.

The river rolled, the crickets sang,
The lightnin’ bug he flashed his wing,
And like a rope my arms I fling
‘Round Rose of Alabamy.
Oh, brown Rosey,
Rose of Alabamy,
The sweet tobacco posey
Is the Rose of Alabamy.

So fare thee well, lil’ Liza Jane,
And fare thee, ye belles of fame,
For all your charms are put to shame
By the Rose of Alabamy.
Oh, brown Rosey,
Rose of Alabamy,
The sweet tobacco posey
Is the Rose of Alabamy.

Silas S. Steele, 1846


Amazing melody and cheerful lyrics. What’s not to love?

This is my little cover, again without vocals.

Next week or two will be really busy for me, so I’ll probably stick to posting music until I’m done with them.

I hope you enjoy!
