American Ballads and Folk Songs
"Say, Mister Rabbit, Your fur mighty gray."
"Yes, bless-a-God,
Seen a ha'nt 'fore day."
Hog an' a sheep,
A-goin' to de paster, Hog to? de sheep,
"Caincha trot a little faster?"
Thousand verses to my song, Hope I've sung 'em all.
'Fore I'd sing 'em all again, I'd see you all in hell.
Iron Head grinned, very literally like the Devil, while he sang this saga of the grey goose. It has the feel of the Paul Bunyan tales and of Uncle Remus.
Well, las' Monday mornin', Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Well, las' Monday mornin', Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, My daddy went a-huntin', etc., [242 ]
