NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
MASTER IS SIX FEET ONE WAY
Mosser is six foot one way, an' free foot
tudder ; An' he weigh five hunderd pound. Britches cut so big dat dey don't suit de
tailor, An' dey don't meet half way 'round.
Mosser's coat come back to a claw-hammer
p'int. (Speak sof or his Bloodhound'll bite us.) His long white stockin's mighty clean an'
nice, But a liddle mo' holier dan righteous.

Br'er Fox wa'k out one moonshiny night, He say to hisse'f w'at he's a gwineter do. He say, "I'se gwineter have a good piece
o' meat, Befo' I leaves dis townyoo. Dis townyoo, dis townyoo! Yes, befo' I leaves dis townyoo!"
