MASSA'S IN DE COLD GROUND
2 When de autumn leaves were falling1,
When de days' were cold, 'Twas hard to hear old massa calling,
Cayse. he was so weak and old. Now de orange'tree am blooming,
On de sandy shore, Nowide summer days am coming,
Massa nebber calls no more.
3 Massa made de darkeys love-him,
Cayse he was so kind, Now dey -sadly weep above him,
Mourning cayse he leave dera behind. I cannot work before to-morrow,
Cayse de tear-drop flow, I try'to drive away my sorrow,
Pickin' on de old banjb.
MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME, GOOD NIGHT
