American Ballads and Folk Songs
I done f oun' out you don't want me 'roun',
Caze de meals dey ain't cooked, an' de bed ain't turned down,
I treats you right an' I treats you white,
But I jes' can't please yuh, try hard as I might.
You eats good grub, wears fine clo's, tooj
Now what mo' in dis wide worl' kin a po' man do.
'Tain't no use to weep, no use to whine,
I done toP you once, toP you las', an' now Ise gwine,
You's a good gal when I Łus' met you,
But now, oP gal, done foun' out you jes' won' do*
I'm gwine somers, dunno where Ise gwine,
Ise gwine somewhere so's t' git you out my min\
I love you, black gal, de people know,
Ise leavin' you, oP gal, but it breaks m' heart to go*
[205]
