3 Farewell to de boys Wid hearts so happy and light,
Dey sing a song
De whole day long, And dance dc juba at night.
Farewell to de fields Ob cotton, 'bacco, and all:
I's guine to hoe
In a bressed row Wha de corn grows mellow and tall.
4 Farewell to dc hills, De meadows covered wid green,
Old brindle Boss
And de old grey hoss All beaten, broken and lean.
Farewell to de dog Dat always followed me 'round;
Old Sancho'll wail
And droop his tail When I am under dc ground,
