Darcy Farrow - Steve Gillette, Tom Campbell

    Where the Walker runs down into the Carson Valley Plain
    There lived a maiden, Darcy Farrow was her name
    The daughter of old Dundee and fair was she
    And the sweetest flower that bloomed o'er the range

    Her voice was sweet as the sugar candy
    Her touch was as soft as a bed of goose down
    Her eyes shone bright like the pretty lights
    That shine in the night out of Yerrington Town

    She was courted by young Vandermeer
    And quite handsome was he I am to hear
    He brought her silver rings and lacy things
    And she promised to wed before the snows came that year

    But her pony did stumble and she did fall
    Her dyin' touched on the heart of us all
    Young Vandy in his pain put a bullet to his brain
    And we buried them together as the snows began to fall

    They sing of Darcy Farrow where the Truckee runs through
    They sing of her beauty in Virginia City too
    At dusty sundown to her name they drink a round
    And to young Vandy whose love was true
