American Ballads and Folk Songs
Oh, Lawd,
Shot my pistol
In de heart of town.
Lawd, de big chief hollered,
"Doncha blow me down."
"Oh, Lawd, Which-a-way Did de po* gal go?" "She leP here runnin3 Is all I know."
"Oh, Lawd,
Which-a-way
Do de Red River run?"
"Lawd, it run eas' and wes*
Like de risin' sun."
Oh, Lawd,
Jes' two cards
In de deck I love,
Lawd, de Jack o' diamonds
An' de ace o' clubs.
Oh, Lawd, Stopped here to play Jes' one mo' game. Lawd, Jack o' diamonds Petered on my han'.
[53]
