American Ballads and Folk Songs
Baby, baby, you don't know
De way you treat me I bound to go.
Chorus:
Gwineter harness in de morning soon, soon, Gwineter harness in de morning soon.
Skinner, skinner, you know yo' rules, Den go to de stable an' curry yo' mule.
Captain, captain, what time o' day? Billy done holler for his oats and hay.
. Billy wuz fat and Queen wuz lean, But I swear, by God, was a wheelin' team.
Look here, Capt'n, whut Billy done done, He done sot down on de wagon tongue.
Went to de towel to wipe my face, Couldn't see nothin' but trimmin' an' lace.
Well, I hear mighty rumblin' up in de sky, Mus' be my Lord go passin' by.
Hollered at oP Beck and she wouldn't gee, Hit her on the head wid de singletree.
Went uptown, goin' to buy me a rope,
Goin' to whip Miss Sally till she "buzzard lope."
Well, capt'n, capt'n, you mus' be Win' j Look at yo' watch! See, ain't it quittin' time?
