POPULAR SONGS. 107
At de berry first snap of his banjo string, Through de cotton field came bounding His Rosa neat wid eyes so sweet,
For she heard his banjo sounding. By his side she sat on de cypress log,
And listened to his tale ob love, For her Ginger dear she loved to hear, For she was gentle as de dove.
For his work was done and his play begun,
And his banjo loud was sounding, And music fair floats in de air, And loud the tambo pounding.
Ah ! Rose, he cried as his banjo rung,
My heart wid love for you is busting, if you will say }es, you will me bless,
We'll happy live, each other trusting, Den Rose she raised her coal black eye,
And said, dear Ginger you may take m«, For as sure as dars angels in de sky, I'm sure dat you will not forsake me. For his work was done and his fun begun,
And his banjo loud was sounding, And music fair floats m de air. And loud de tambo pounding.
