Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
White folks, white folks
Where am your brains, Doing all these things
Fo' yo' pains; And white folks, white folks
Don't take it ill, Ef when you talkó
I done keep still.
THE POOR WHITE MAN
The poor white man,
The poor white man, Living up north
In a cold white land; Never saw a banjo
Or heard a nigger band, And I'd rather be a nigger
Than a po' white man.
The poor white man,
The poor white man, Never saw a possum
Or a possum in a pan. Never had a chicken
Or a razor in his hand, And I'd rather be a nigger
Than a po' white man.
