NEGRO FOLK RHYMES
Dat hambone an' chicken are sweet. Dat 'possum meat are sholy fine. But give me,—now don't you cheat!— (Oh, I jes wish you would give me!) Dat watermillion, smilin' on de vine.
"THEY STEAL" GOSSIP
Some folks say dat a Nigger won't steal, But Mosser cotch six in a watermillion fiel'; A-cuttin', an' a-pluggin' an' a-tearin' up de
vines, A-eatin' all de watermillions, an' a-stackin' up
Uh-huhf Yes, I heared dat:
Ole Mosser stole a middlin' o' meat, Ole Missus stole a ham; Dey sent 'em bofe to de Wuk-house, An' dey had to leave de land.
