Where the Walker runs down to the Carson Valley plane There lived a maiden, Darcy Farrow was her name The daughter of old Dundee and a fair one was she The sweetest flower that bloomed o'er the plain Her voice was sweet as the sugar candy Her touch was soft as a bed of goosedown Her eyes shone bright like the pretty lights That shine in the night out of Yerrington Town She was courted by young Vandermere And quite handsome was he, as I hear He bought her silverrings and other lacy things And she promised to wed before the snows fell that year But her pony did stumble and she did fall Her dying touched the hearts of us one and all Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet through his brain And they buried them together as the snow began to fall They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs through They sing of her beauty in Virginia City too At dusky sundown to her name they drink a round And to young Vandy whose love was true (Contributed by - December 2009)
