Day too long, Lawdy, day too. long, Stayed in Mis'sippi jes' a day too long.
Chorus:
O Rosie, oho,
O Rosie, oh, Lawd, gal.
O Rosie, oho,
O Rosie, oh, Lawd, gal.
I'm in trouble down on de farm, I'm in trouble down on de farm, I'm in trouble down on de farm, I'm in trouble, Lawdy, all day long, All day long, honey, all day long, I'm in trouble, honey, all day long.
Chorus:
O Rosie, oho,
O Rosie, oh, Lawd, gal.
O Rosie, oho,
O Rosie, oh, Lawd, gal.
Think I'll jump in forty foot of water, Over my head, Lawdy, over my head.
You needn' worry, you kin take yo' time, Kin give me ninety an' still have nine [years'].
Oh, I wonder who got de sergeant Down on me, Lawdy, down on me.
Some ol' snitcher mus' got de sergeant Down on me, Lawdy, down on me.
Ef I don' kill him, I'm gonna fix him so He won' be snitchin' on me no mo'. *            *            *
[64]
