Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
I've got to go to market
I've got to go to town, I've got to sell this cotton
For my neighbor, Mr. Brown; It's just around the corner
Beyond the little school, A half a dozen paces
But a million for a mule.
WHERE THE COTTON USED TO GROW
Dinah my heart is weeping
Dinah my heart is sad, Dinah 'twould make me happy
Dinah 'twould make me glad; Once more while I'm living
Once more there to go, Back to dear old Dixie
Where the cotton used to grow.
Dinah no more I'm weeping
Dinah no more I'm sad, Dinah my heart is happy
Dinah my heart is glad; For the good Lord tells me
And the Lord must know, We're going back to Dixie
Where the cotton used to grow.
