Where the Walker runs down thru the Carson Valley Plain
There lived a maiden Darcy Farrow was her name.
The daughter of Old Dundee and a fair one was she
The [G] sweet-[A7]-est [D] flower [G] that [D] bloomed [A7] o’er the [D] range.
Her voice was as sweet as sugar candy
Her touch was as soft as a bed of eider down
Her eyes shone so bright like the pretty lights
That shine in the evening out of Yerrington town.
She was courted by young Vandamere
And quite handsome was he so I hear.
He gave her silver rings and pretty lacy things
And she promised to wed before the snows came that year
But her pony did stumble and she did fall
Her dying touched the hearts of us one and all
Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet thru his brain
We buried them together as the snow began to fall.
They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs thru
They sing of her beauty in Virginia City, too
At dusky sundown to her name they drink a round
And to young Vandy whose love was true.
