I like de cambric handkerchief,
I like de beaver hat; Oh, hand me down my high heel boots,
Likewise my silk cravat. De niggers dey am grinning,
An dar teeth looks very white, We'll go across de mountain, boys,
Spoken: What for ?
To have a little dance to-night. Chorus: We'll have a little dance to-night, &c.
I rises at de broke ob day,
To take my morning walk, I meet my lubly Julian,
And dis de way we talk ; I says, " you are my own true love,
You are my heart's delight, Will you go over de riber dis evening,
Spoken : What for !
To have a little dance to-night. Chorus : We'll have a little dance to-night, &c
I MUST GO TO RICHMOND.
Written and sung by Charles White. De oder day old Jarsey Joe, Went out wid Sue de corn to hoe ; But he hoed it down wid de toe an heel, Till de ground was hard, it not would peel.
