NEGRO DIALECT VERSES             200
Aun' Dinah's up in Heben's res'
An' all de darkeys gone To whar dey'll nevah hear no mo' Dat good ole dinnah hawn, Dat good ole dinnah hawn,
Fur hot pone, an' hock-bone, Dem times is come en gone.
MY ALABAMA ROSE.
My honey love she's lovely,
Lak roses on de vine; Lawd love dat lovely lady
What's a' dwellin' in my min\ Some roses dey is sweetes'
When wet wid mawnin' dew, My yaller rose is sweetes'
De livelong day all thoo.
Den laugh an' shout an' sing, you niggahs, sing, An' dance an' prance an' mek de banjo ring; Chune up dat riddle mighty fine, Den walk de chalk an' toe de line.
I gwine to sail an' sail away
Thoo all de rollin' worl', Jes' seekin' out fur diemonts
