THE YANKEE QUILTING-PARTY.                        53
For de dirty work, I swear, Dat has long been goin' on dere, Has bery nearly brought dis place to ruin.
Oh, oh, oh, etc.
"When I first came to dis town, Some twenty years ago,
I was a gay and dashin' little feller; But as I older grew, I saved a dime or two,
And set up whitewash business in a cellar. ^           Oh, oh, oh, etc.
Oh, dere's one thing more I'd say,. Before I go away,                                   *
And dat's about de colored population: If dey had only left 'em alone, In deir good old darkey home,
It would have been better for dis great and glorious nation.
Oh, oh, oh, etc.
THE YANKEE QUILTING-PARTY. Sung by Archy Hughes.
It was down at Major Parsons' house,
The gals they had a quilting, Just for to show their handsome looks,
And have a little jilting. There was Deacon Jones's daughter Sal,
And Squire Wheeler's Mary; ' And General Carter's youngest gaL
That looked just like a fairy.
Chorus. Then Yankee lasses all the u-
Niversal airth bewitching; The good and true, and handsome too,
The parlor or the kitchen.
