Down by the river that flows by the coal yard,
Stands wooden houses with shutters torn down;
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches,
Patches, my darlin' of old Shantytown.

Patches, I'm comin' to you,
I will swear, I'll always love you;
For it may not be right but I'll join you tonight,
Patches of old Shantytown.

We were to marry when June brought the summer,
I couldn't wait to make patches my bride;
But I can't see how that ever can happen,
My folks say no and my heart breaks inside.

Patches, I'm comin' to you,
I will swear, I'll always be true;
For it may not be right but I'll join you tonight,
Patches of old Shantytown.

Patches, I'm comin' to you,
I will swear, I'll always love you;
For it may not be right but I'll join you tonight,
Patches of old Shantytown.
Patches of old Shantytown.
