NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
'POSSUM UP THE GUM STUMP
'Possum up de gum stump, Dat raccoon in de holler; Twis' 'im out, an' git 'im down, An' I'll gin you a half a doller.
'Possum up de gum stump, Yes, cooney in de holler; A pretty gal down my house Jes as fat as she can waller.
'Possum up de gum stump, His jaws is black an' dirty; To come an' kiss you, pretty gal, I'd run lak a goobler tucky.
'Possum up de gum stump, A good man's hard to fin'; You'd better love me, pretty gal, You'll git de yudder kin'.
