supposedly this is by Stephen Foster
It is actually a modal tune (but I'm not sure which mode)
D / / / | / / Bm / | D / / / | / Bm D /Angeline is handsome, Angeline is tall.
Angeline the Bakegirl, her age is forty two.
They say she sprained her ankle while standing on her shoe.
Her uncle is a baker, they call him Uncle Sam.
He always drinks good whiskey when there is a dram.
Her brother is a baker, they call him Brother Bill.
He drinks and smokes and eats a lot, guess he always will.
Another similar song is Angelina Baker
ch: Angelina Baker, Angelina Baker Angelina Baker, Angelina Baker
Angelina baker lives on the village green
The way that I love her beats all to be seen
Angelina baker her age is 43
I gave her candy by the peck, but she won't marry me
She won't do the bakin', because she is too stout
She makes cookies by the peck and throws the coffee out
The last time I saw her, it was at the county fair
Her daddy chased me halfway home and told me to stay there
Angelina taught me to weep, and she taught me to moan
Angelina taught me to weep and play on the old jawbone
My new-fangled chorus:
Angeline is handsome, Angeline is tall.
They say she sprained her ankle while shopping at the mall.
