American Ballads and Folk Songs
Shanty-Man
I neber see de like since I been born,
When a big buck nigger wid his sea boots on.
Chorus
Says: "Johnny come down to Hilo,
Poor old man!
Oh, wake her, oh, shake her,
Oh, wake dat gal wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man!"
[484]
