One night when de moon wharbeamin', I lay fast asleep a dreamin' Dat de sun was shinin' bright in de middle ob de
night, An' de darkies had collected for to hab a little fight. When I 'woke, O, de banjo was soundin ! De bones thro' de air was a boundin'! But how pleasant it did seem! I was married—
in a dream— In de floatin' scow Virginia, on de Mississippi stream I
Den I warn all you darkies, &c.
GINGER'S TALE OF LUB.
Written and sung by Mr. E. Deares, of the far famed band of Virginia Seresaders.
De gimson weeds all blooming fair
Dar fragrance round did fling, As Ginger lay at close ob day, And picked his banjo stringr Clearly through dat field ob corn,
De supper horn did sound, And de possom sweet he longed to meet, Was sittin on de ground For his work was done and his fun begun.
And his banjo loud was sounding, And music fair floats in de air, Aud loud de tainbo pounding.
