Niggers, has you seed ole Mosser; (Red mustache on his face.) A-gwine 'roun' sometime dis mawnin', 'Spectin' to leave de place?
Nigger Hands all runnin' 'way, Looks lak we mought git free! It mus' be now de *Kingdom Come In de Year o' Jubilee.
Oh, yon'er comes ole Mosser Wid his red mustache all white! It mus' be now de Kingdom Come Sometime to-morrer night.
Yanks locked him in de smokehouse
cellar, De key's throwed in de well: It sho' mus' be de Kingdom Come. Go ring dat Nigger field-bell!
* Kingdom Come = Freedom.
