American Ballads and Folk Songs
I pitch my tent on this camp ground, few days, few days,
And give old Satan another round,
And I am going home.
I can't stay in these diggings, few days, few days,
I can't stay in these diggings,
I am going home.
•From George Pullen Jackson's White Spirituals of the Southern Uplands (University of North Carolina Press). Professor Jackson reprinted the song from the Social Harp.
