Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
THE DARKY DRUM AND FIFE CORPS
The darky drum and fife corps
Is marching on parade, The avenue is crowded
And the favorite tune is played; And the pride of all that company
Was not the major talló But it was the big bass drummer
And his little sheepskin ball.
Boom, boom, boom!
Boom, boom, boom! Bumpety, bumpety,
Boom, boom, boom; See those elbows flying
Dispersing every gloom, Bumpety, bumpety,
Boom, boom, boom.
The darky drum and fife corps
Is marching on parade, The windows all are opened
By the smiling man and maid; And the pride of all that company
Was not the major talló But it was the big bass drummer
And his little sheepskin ball.
