Originally titled Angelina Baker, this Stephen Foster song was written and published in 1850 for the Christy Minstrels. It laments the loss of a salve woman who was sent away by her owner. Due to the folk process, some versions have related to the "Ugly Girl" or "Dinah." John Lomax collected an instrumental version which was under the title "Angelina the Baker."/p>
