VERSE 01: He played the leading “heavies,”/And caught her in his snare/She came each night to see him,/That maiden young and fair/And ere a week was over,/They sang the same old tune/And skipped unto the person on/One summer afternoon
CHORUS: She ran away with a bold, bad man,/O dear me!/Commonly known as “Handsome Dan”/O dear me!/He leered at the girl with his wicked eye/He kissed her once and she said, “O my!”/He said, “be mine!” and away she ran/With a bold, bad man.
VERSE 02: But when a happy month had past,/Alas! For love’s brief day/The handsome villain kissed his wife,/And slyly skipped away./He didn’t return that day or next/And all that she could know/Was that he played the villain in/Another traveling show.
VERSE 03:That villain is a villain still,/The widow widowed yet/And though he long ago forgot,/She never will forget/She would not wed another now/No future does she plan,/But lives that one brief month again,/Rememb’ring that she ran.
