American Ballads and Folk Songs
Gwineter hug my Julie,
Oho!
Gwineter hug my Julie,
Oho!
Lead Belly could go on at great length about Julie and his intentions toward her, but we shall leave the reader to improvise further accord­ing to his own fancy.
MY YALLOW GAL
As sung by Iron Head, an "habitual criminal,'5 imprisoned on the Central State Farm near Sugarland, Texas- This is one of the few folk songs about women on the lips of Negro men that have any element of tenderness.
Oh, my daddy was a fool about dat yallow gal, Oh, my daddy was a fool about dat yallow gal.
