American Ballads and Folk Songs
WEDLOCK *
When Adam was created, He dwelt in Eden's shade, As Moses has related, Before a bride was made; Ten thousand times ten thousand Things wheeled all around, Before a bride was formed, Or yet a mate was found.
He had no consolation, But seemed as one alone, Till, to his admiration, He found he'd lost a bone. This woman was not taken From Adam's head, we knowj And she must not rule o'er him, It's evidently so.
► From George Pullen Jackson's White Spirituals of the Southern Uplands.
