Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
THE PLACARD
Who wants to buy, I want to sell A swayback mule sound and well, Warranted broke and does not kick, Willing to work and never sick; And Sambo read and scratched his head And pondered long and then he said, The man that wrote that no kick rule Is talking bull and not a mule.
NIGGER GIN
Rastus to the Doctor went
With a lot of ills and not a cent,
And this is the way he told the physician
How he felt in his condition;
Ah can't sleep and ah can't eat
And ah can't stand upon mah feet,
Mah tongue am hot mah feet am cool
And ah done feel jes' like a fool;
The doctor heard his mournful cries
The doctor saw his bleary eyes,
Saw his symptoms and grimaces,
Saw the effects and the traces;
And raising his finger in the air
Bode him heed his warning there,
Foh you done got, said Doctor Grin,
A very bad case of Nigger Gin.
