ROSA'S WEDDING DAY.
As sung by Charles White.
Oh, name de spot and tell me whar,
That I can find my Rosa dear ,
She promised me only last night,
To meet me here when de moon shone bright.
Chorus : Sing, sing away, its our delight
To work by day, and sing by night;
Sing de darkies' favorite lay,
For to-morrow's Rosa's wedding-day.
When I was young and in my prime, There was no darks could get my time To hoe de corn an eat hoe cake, While Rosa she would pass de plate.
Sing, sing away, &c.
She had a small wrist with a very good figure, Which charmed de heart ob dis ere nigger ; But alas ! alas ! my rival came, Ole Bull Sam Johnson was his name.
Sing, sing away, &c
He took my Rosa by de hand, An led her down to Virginia's land ; An when dey got to de ole log house, He took my Rosa to be his spouse.
Sing, sing away, &c.
