POPULAR SOttGS. 125
Chorus: I must go to Richmond, I must go to Richmond* I must go to Richmond, if I can get a chance, I must go to Richmond, to see de niggers dance
I drove to de mill to get some meal, But de mud suck in my ole cart wheel! Den my oxen down in a horse track slip, But I pull him out wid a hickory whip. I must go to Richmond, &c»
Den come a painter from de woods, He began to tear off my dry goods ; Says I, massa wild puss, you my rail, So I scratch out his eyes wid my toe nail. I must go to Richmond, &c.
I rode to de riber, my horse to swim, I got brushed off wid a poplar limb ; I hung to de limb, an hit him such a crack, Now he looks like a camel wid a hump on his back. I must go to Richmond, &c.
I went a fishing de oder day, Into a steamboat down de bay; I jerk my line much harder dan I oughter> An I pull de steamboat out ob de water. I must go to Richmond, &c.
