Negro Poems, Melodies
OLD JIM CROW
Old Jim Crow went walking
Went walking down the street, He had a clumsy manner
And he had big clumsy feet; But when he started dancing
And dancing Juba too, You never saw such prancing
As old Jim could do.
He cavorted through the two-step
He cavorted up and down, He scrambled through the one-step
And tumbled round and round; And wherever there is dancing
The dancing old and new, You never saw such dancing
As Old Jim Crow did do.
The bobolink and the blackbird
They looked on in amaze, To see the funny jumping
Of Jim Crow and his ways; And to this day in Dixie
They say it's very true, There is no more such dancing
As Old Jim Crow could do.
