Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
When you eat a hoe cake
You want to eat it hot, Take it from the oven
And eat it on the spot; Hold it in the middle,
Hold it in your han' And then just watch the antics
Of that grinning nigger man.
I'M THERE
Every different nigger
Has a different taste, You can see it in their manner,
You can see it in their face; Some might want a turtle,
Some might want a bear, But when you say rabbit
I'm there.
Possum is too juicy,
Chicken is too dry, Watermelon lovely
When they take the eye ; Some might want a turkey,
Some might want a hare, But when you say rabbit
I'm there.
