American Ballads and Folk Songs
BLOW THE MAN DOWN *
As I was a-walkin' down Paradise Street,
To me aye, aye—blow the man down!
A saucy young p'liceman I chanced for to meet 5
Blow the man down, to me aye, aye, blow the man down!
Whether he's white man or black man or brown,
Give me some time to blow the man down,
•From Carl Sandburg's The American Songbag (New York: Harcourt, Brace and Co.).
[491 ]
