GUEST,Deb Lyr Add: Good-bye, My Lover, Good-bye (T H Allen) (33) RE: Lyr Add: Good-bye, My Lover, Good-bye 11 Jan 11

My family handed down a lullaby version of this song. it went like this:

Steamboat's comin' around the bend.
Good-bye my lover, good-bye
It's loaded down with good girls and boys
Good-bye, my lover, good-bye.

Bye-oh, my baby
Bye-oh, my baby,
bye-oh, my baby,
Bye-oh, my baby, bye-oh.

I was told it was a Negro song, sung by the slaves back in the family. This was in the southern Indiana/ Louisville area. I love this song, and have sung it to my children and grand children.
