In New Orleans again. Dey make me mow in de hay field here
And knock my head wid de flail, I '11 go wha dey work wid de sugar and de
And roll on de cotton bale [cane
4 My lady love is as pretty as a pink.
I'll meet her on de way, 111 take her back to de sunny old south
And dah I'll make her stay. So dont you fret, my honey dear,
Oh! dont you fret, Miss Brown, fweek, I'll take you back 'fore de middleof de
When de Glendy Burke comes down.
