PLANTATION MELODIES.
35
She's gone away to Leb'non State, To hoe de corn and bake de cako , Massa says it is too late, Let her go to Leb'non State.
Chorus. Fi, hi, hi, lum I dum diddle lum, Fi, hi, hi, ri tiddle lum i dum, Fi, hi, hi.
And since she's gone and left me,
I don't know what I'll do ; 1*11 buy a rope and drown myself:
Dat make her mad, I know. She's gone away to Leb'non State, To hoe de corn and bake de cake; And massa says it is too late: Let her go to Leb'non State.
Chorus. Fi, hi, hi, &c.
Katy Dean.
The music, with piano-forte accompaniment, published By Win. Hall & Son, New York.
I'm deep in lub wid a color'd gal dat come from.
Tennessee, I dont know, but I guess she lubs a color'd man
like me ; De fust time dat I saw her she was walking on do
green, A darkie dat was wid me says, "Dar goes Miss Katy
Dean."
Chorus. Oh ! Katy, oh ! Katy, I bid you now farewell, If ever we should meet again, a story I wil," tell. (Repeat.)
