Log cabin in the lane

Oh, I'm getting old and feeble and I can't work on more
The children no more gather around my door
And ol' massa and ol' missus, they are sleeping side by side
Near the little ol' log cabin in the lane

Oh, the chimney's falling down and the roof's all caved in
Letting in the sunshine and the rain
And the only friend I've got now is that good old dog of mine
And that little old log cabin in the lane

Oh, the paths have all growed up that led around the hill
The fences have all gone to decay
And the creeks have all dried up where we used to go to mill
And things have changed thier course another day

Oh, I ain't got long to stay here, what little time I got
I want to rest content while I remain
Till death shall call this dog and me to find a better home
And that little old log cabin in the lane
