Oh! ya, ya ! darkies, laugh with me; For de white folks say old Shady 's free. Do n't you see dat de jubilee
Is comin', comin'! Hail mighty day!

Massa got scared, and so did his lady! Dis chile broke for old Uncle Aby; Open de gates out! here 's old Shady Comin', comin'! Hail, mighty day.
Chorus.—Den away, den away, for I can 't stay any longer; etc.
