Looking For Henry Lee

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
Tonight all the folks will cut the corn (Helen and Anita Carter: cut the corn)
Tonight I'll be glad that I was born (I was born)
For my Henry Lee I'll see, he'll be a cuttin' corn with me
And we'll meet 'neath the bitter berry tree


Carter Sisters:
Hey, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
A looking for Henry Lee


June:
Tonight oh the moon is shining bright (shining bright)
Tonight yeah them cornfields are a sight (are a sight)
I have reached the meeting spot, but my Henry Lee has not
And I wonder, can it be that he forgot


Carter Sisters:
Hey, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
A looking for Henry Lee

June: Oh Henry Lee, why did you make me wait
Anita: Because tonight I got another date, my name ain’t Henry
June: It was plain for me to see he'd been keeping company
With another girl beneath another tree

Carter Sisters:
Hey, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
A looking for Henry Lee


June:
I told my Henry Lee to go away (go away)
But now that he has went, I wish he’d stayed (didn't stay)
And tonight in case that he might come searchin' 'round for me
I'll be waitin' 'neath the bitter berry tree

Carter Sisters:
Hey, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee

Hey, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
Oh way, around the corner, ooh-ooh
Beneath the berry tree
There on the footpath, behind the bush
Looking for Henry Lee
