NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
He come wid his instriments Right in his han', To progue an' find Dat forty-fo', Man! De Doctah he progued; He progued 'im sho'! But he jes couldn' find Dat forty-fo'.
Dey sent fer de Preachah,
An' de preachah he come.
He come in a walk,
An' he come in to talk.
He come wid 'is Bible,
Right in 'is han',
An' he read from dat chapter,
Forty-fo', Man!
Dat Preachah, he read.
He read, I know.
What Chapter did he read frum ?
'Twus Forty-fo'!
