American Ballads and Folk Songs
Big black nigger lying on the log, Finger on trigger, eye on the hog. Gun says bum! hog says bip! Nigger jumped on him with all his grip.
Chorus:
Got my pork chops,
Good chitlins, big kidneys j
Got the liver, too. You shall be free,
When the good Lord sets you free.
Way down yonder 'bout Cedar Creek, Niggers don't grow but 'leven feet} They lay in the bed till it ain't no use, Feet stick out like a chicken roost.
Chorus:
Shout study, you shall be free, When the good Lord sets you free.
If you want to get to heben, I'll tell you how to do it: Slick your feet in muttin suet, When the devil gets at you with a red-hot hand, Slip way over in the promised land!
[255]
