Kendall,
Poor Howard's dead and gone, left me here to sing this song
Poor Howard's dead and gone x3
Left me here to sing this song

Who's been here since I've been gone
Pretty little girl with a red dress on x3
Left me here to sing this song
(Then you can do another poor Howard if you want)
Who's been here since I've been gone
Little old man with a derby on x3
Left me here to sing this song

That's pretty much it, I learned the words from Leadbelly and Ramblin' Jack Elliott ml
