POPULAR SONGS.                         7V
WE LIVE ON DE BANKS OB DE OHIO.
We live on de banks ob de Ohio,
Tra la la, tra la la, Whar de mighty waters do rapidly flow, And de steamboat streak it along. We live on de bank ob de Ohio,
Ohio, Ohio, We lib on de banks ob de Ohio, Ohio, Ohio.
Droop not darkies as we go,
Tra la la, tra la la. Back to de banks ob de Ohio,
To raise de 'bacco and corn, &c.
We live on de banks ob de Ohio.
a very short time we all must go, Tra la la, tra la la. i'o de sweet land ob de Ohio,
Whar de niggers and gals do dwell, &c We live on de banks ob de Ohio.
Old Massa to us darkies am good,
Tra la la, tra la la. For he gibs us our clothes and he gibs us our food,
And we merrily work for him, &c. And w« live on de banks ob de Ohio.
