American Ballads and Folk Songs___________
AIN' NO MO' CANE ON DE BRAZIS*
It ain' no mo' cane on de Brazis,
O------o-------o----------,
Done groun' it all in molazzis, O------o——o----------•.
Better git yo' overcoat ready, Well, it's comin' up a norther.
Well, de captain standin' an' lookin' an' cryin', Well, it's gittin' so col', my row's behin'.
Cap'n, doncha do me like you did po' Shine, Drive dat bully till he went stone-blin'.
Cap'n, cap'n, you mus' be blin', Keep on holl'in' an' I'm almos' flyin\
One o' dese mornin's, an' it won' be long, You gonna call me an' I'll be gone.
Ninety-nine years so jumpin' long, To be here rollin' an' cain' go home.
•From the Central State Farm near Houston, Texas5 sung by Mexico, Lightnin', and Dave Tippini
