American Ballads and Folk Songs
Come along, chillun, come along, While the moon's shinin' bright, Git on board, down de river float, We gonna raise a rukus tonight.
All dem taters in dat oven, Raise a rukus tonight, How I wish I had some ob 'em! Raise a rukus tonight.
All dem peas in dat pot, Raise a rukus tonight, Look how many we have got, Raise a rukus tonight.
All dem biscuits in dat pan,
Raise a rukus tonight,
Ef I don' git 'em, gonna raise some san',
Raise a rukus tonight.
A spiritual taken over by the "worl'ly." The changing and fluid chorus comes in at irregular intervals.
