__________American Ballads and Folk Songs
When I git to heaven, gwineter be at ease, Me an5 my God's gwineter do as we please!
MAN GOIN' ROUND*
There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names, There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names, An' he took my mother's name, An' he leave my heart in pain, There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names.
There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names, There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names, An' he took my father's name, An' he leave my heart in pain, There's a man goin' 'roun' takin' names.
(Sister, brother, etc.)
*From Carl Sandburg's American Songbag (New York: Harcourt, Brace and Co.).
