American Ballads and Folk Songs
Ef I had a-listened What Rosie said, I'd a-been sleepin' In a-Rosie's bed.
But-a I wouldn' listen} Got to runnin' aroun', An' de firs' thing I knew, I was jail-house boun\
Well, I got in de jail, Wid my mouf poked out} Now I'm in de pen, An' I cain' get out.
Well-a, John made A pair of shoes} Funnies' shoes Dat was ever seen}
Had a heel in front
An' a heel behin'}
Well, you couldn' tell where
Dat boy was a-gwine.
Well-a, come on, honey, Lemme shet dat do'. Well, de dogs is a-comin' An' I got to go.
Well-a, hear dat sergeant, Jus' a-huffin' an' a-blowin'} Well, I b'lieve I hear Ol' Rattler moanin'.
Well, I crossed dat Brazos In de mornin' dew}
