200              NEGRO DIALECT VERSES
You kin always tell, for sartin an' for sho',
Ef Julie gal's in town,
Or anywhar aroun' By dat Sunday shirt a'hangin' on de do'.
JAW-BONE TALK.
Hen, she fit de chicken hawk; Jaw-bone eat wid knife and fawk, So dem jaw-bone talkers talk, Whilse dem walkers walk de chalk.
Talk jaw-bone, do go home, In come Jin wid 'er josey on.
Alligator on a log
Holdin' talk wid er high-back hog;
'Gator lip dat rivah fence,
En I ain' seed dat ole hog sence.
Cawn-pone in de fryin' pan, Look so good to er hawngry man, In dar wid de possum fat, I, ca' stop en stan' all dat.
Ole Jack Fros' er sassy man, Foolin' roun' in Dixie Ian';
