While no one was looking on the old plantation
He took her all the way down the long valley road
They sent her away not too much later
Left him walking down the old valley road

Sometimes I lead, sometimes I follow
This time I'll go where she wants me to go
She said maybe today, maybe tomorrow
Go deep in the woods down the long valley road

Walk on walk on little doll walk
Walkon little doll

Out in the hall they were talkin' in a whisper
Everybody noticed she was gone a while
Somebody said she was gone to her sister's
Everyone knew what they were talkin' about

While no one was looking on the old plantation
He showed her what they do down the long valley road
Came back around like nothin' really happened
Left him standing on the old valley road

Walk on walk on little doll walk on
Walk on little doll
Walk on, walk on the valley road

Standing like a stone on the old plantation
Rich old man wouldn't ever let him in
Good enough to hire, not good enough to marry
When it all happens, nobody wins

Walk on walk on little doll walk on
Walkon little doll etc
