120                        POPULAR SONGS.
He tink ob frens he luff behind, When from dem he was torn ;
But pshawhe soon forgets dem,
When he hears de dinner horn.
De dinner horn, &c.
When ebening shades are coming on,
De sun sinks down de west; De nigger's toil will soon be done,
An den he'll hab some rest,
'Tis den he hears dem witchin' notes Dat on de breeze is borne,
From de ole oberseer's throat Fro' dat ole dinner 'horn.
De dinner horn, &c.
As sung by White's, Christy's, and Ncw-Orleani Serenades.
Oh, come to my darkey home,
Oh, come along wid me ! Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya!
Oh, come along wid me, For I'm a going to marry ; I will no longer tarry !
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya ! Oh, I' m a going to marry !
