NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
AS I WENT TO SHILOH
As I went down To Shiloh Town; I rolled my barrel of Sogrum down. Dem lasses rolled; An' de hoops, dey bust; An' blowed dis Nigger clear Thundergust!
JUMP JIM CROW
Git fus upon yo' heel,
An' den upon yo' toe;
An ebry time you tu'n 'round,
You jump Jim Crow.
Now fall upon yo' knees, Jump up an' bow low; An' ebry time you tu'n 'round, You jump Jim Crow.
Put yo' han's upon yo' hips, Bow low to yo' beau; An' ebry time you tu'n 'round, You jump Jim Crow.
