Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
THE OLD STEAMBOAT
Sambo went to market
To sell a little pig, He had a dozen chickens
And he had a balky rig; He got down near the river
With his chickens and his shoat, Toot! Toot! goes the whistle
Of the old steamboat.
His mule he got excited
And started on a run, And sped along the highway,
Like a bullet from a gun; Scattered were the chickens
And scattered was the shoat, Toot! Toot! frightened by the whistle
Of the old steamboat.
And Sambo started clubbing
That critter of a mule, Until he had him humbled
And looking like a fool; And then he caught the chickens
And then he caught the shoat, Toot! Toot! frightened by the whistle
Of the old steamboat.
