Negro PoemSj Melodies
BEFO' DE WAH
I was bo'n Sah in a cabin,
A cabin very small, It didn't have a chimney
And it didn't have a hall; But it had a big sunflower
Growing round the door, And this was long ago, Sah,
Long befo' de wah.
Long befo' the wah, Sah, Long befo' de wah, The darkies they were singing, The banjos they were ringing, Down in old Virginia Long befo' de wah.
I was bo'n down in the Souf, Sah,
Upon a little farm, The days were bright and sunny
And the nights were bright and warm; The rabbit and the turtle
Would come around the door, And this was long ago, Sah,
Long befo' de wah.
