RATTLER
Go call ole Rattler from de
bo'n. Here Rattler! Here! He'll drive de cows out'n de co'n, Here Rattler! Here!
Rattler is my huntin' dog.
Here Rattler! Here!
He's good fer rabbit, good fer
hog, Here Rattler! Here!
He's good fer 'possum in de dew. Here Rattler! Here! Sometimes he gits a chicken, too. Here Rattler! Here!
BROTHER BEN AND SISTER SAL
Ole Br'er Ben's a mighty good ole man, He don't steal chickens lak he useter. He went down de chicken roos' las' Fri­day night, An' tuck off a dominicker rooster.
