PLANTATION MELODIES.
Oh! den I work and den I sing
So happy all de day, Till Angelina Baker came *
And stole my heart away.
Chorus. Angelina Baker!
Angelina Baker's gone— She left me here to weep a tear, And beat on de old jaw-bone.
(Repeat ) I've seen my Angelina
In de spring-time and de fall; I've seen her in de corn-field,
And I've seen her at de ball j And eb'ry time I met her
She was smiling like de sun, But now I'm left to weep a tea/ Cayse Angelina's gone.
Chorus. Angelina Baker! &c.
Angelina am so tall
She nebber sees de ground, She bab to take a wellumscope
To look down on de town; Angelina like de boys
As far as she can see dem, She used to run old massa round
To ax him for to free dem.
Chorus. Angelina Baker! &c.
1 Early in de morning
Ob a lubly summer day, I ax for Angelina,
And dey say " She's gone away"-— I dont know wha to find her,
Cayse I don't know wha she's gone. She left me here to weep a tear,
And beat on de old jaw-bone.
Chorus. Angelina Baker. &c. 6
