You oughta see my Cindy
She lives a way down South
She's so sweet the honey bees
Swarm around her mouth

Cindy in the summer
Cindy in the fall
If I can't have my Cindy gal
I'll have no gal at all

Get along home, Cindy Cindy
Get along home
Get along home, Cindy Cindy
I'll marry you someday

I wish I had a nickel
I wish I had a dime
I'd give it to my Cindy gal
To love me all the time

Now Cindy's got religion
She had it once before
But when she hears the banjo play
She's the first one on the floor

When Cindy got religion
She twirled around and round
She got so full of glory
She knocked the preacher down

She's going down to Richmond
You wanna know what for?
She's going down to Richmond
To put an end to war

I wish I was an apple
Hanging on a tree
Then every time my Cindy'd pass
She'd take a bit of me

I wish I had a needle
As fine as I could sew
I'd sew that gal to my coat tails
And down the road we'll go
