___________American Ballads and Folk Songs
The girls will sit and spin, the boys will sit and grin, Rally round the barnyard and chase the old blue hen.
The girls will go to school, the boys will act the fool, Rally round the barnyard and chase the old gray mule.
The girls will sew and patch, the boys will fight and scratch, And we'll all meet together in the sweet potato patch.
Oh, the buffalo is dead, for I shot him in the head,
And we'll rally round the canebrake and shoot the buffalo.
Went down to low groun' to gather up my corn, Raccoon set the dogs on me, possum blowed his ho'n.
Oh, the hawk shot the buzzard and the buzzard shot the crow, And we'll rally round the canebrake and shoot the buffalo.
I'll buy my wife a horse and saddle she can ride, And I'll buy me another one and ride by her side.
Went down to Raleigh, never been there befo', White folks on the feather bed, niggers on the flo'*
GOING TO BOSTON
