WALK IN JOE.
As sung by Christy's celebrated Bund of Minstrel*.
Sheep's meat is too good for colored people, Sheep's meat is too good for niggers; When I went into the house, no one there ex­cept the mouse, Sitten by de fire place, dare was a rat eatin grease. Banjo Symphony.—Walk in Joe.
Walk in Joe. Walk in Joe, now I'll be your friend John, A long way to go, and no money for to spend.
Black my boots in de kitchen,
Seventy-five cents to the quarter,
Black em wid ole Day & Martin, make em shine
and dat for sartin, Massa sue me for de treason, 'kase he couldn't
dats de reason.                 *
Banjo Symphony.—Walk in Joe,
Walk in Joe. Walk in Joe, now I'll be your friend John, A long way to go, and aint got a red cent.
De ole gray cat loved de honey, De ole gray cat loved de honey, He loved de honey mighty well, he eat so much
he 'gan to swell, And in de honey pot he fell, he couldn't get out
it's strange to tell.
Banjo symphony.—Walk in Joe,
Walk in Joe, Walk in Joe, now I'll be your friend John, A long way to go, and aint got a Picayune.
