American Ballads and Folk Songs
"I am' gonna buy coke here no mo'," An' Mister Apperson slam de do'. Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
Went to Mister Lehman's on a lope, Sign in de window said, "No mo' coke." Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
Well, I wake up in de mornin' by de city clock bell, An' de niggers up town givin' cocaine hell, Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
Goin' up State Street, comin' down Main, Lookin' for a woman dat use cocaine, Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
A yellow girl I do despise, But a jut-black girl I can't deny, Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
De blacker de berry, de sweeter de juice,
Takes a brown-skin woman for my pertickeler use*
Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
I'se got a nickel, you's got a dime, You buy de coke an' I'll buy de wine. Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
I chew my terbacker, I spit my juice, I love my baby, till it ain' no use, Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
Well, de cocaine habit is mighty bad, It kill ev'body I know it to have had. Ho, ho, honey, take a whiff on me.
[187]
