DEM SHOES
Look here nigger at my feet, Ain't them lovely and ain't them sweet? Ah jes' bought 'em, they're only two's And ah gave a dollar for dem shoes. Look here nigger what you see, All dem folks done look at me, Glory! Glory! I need the blues For Fse too happy in dem shoes.
THE OLD MULE'S TAIL
That old mule's tail
Am a swinging to and fro, Swinging like a pendulum
And swinging high and low. And I thought it was a windstorm
And I thought it was a gale When riding with my Dinah
And that old mule's tail.
That old mule's tail
Am a swinging to and fro, Swinging when I'm coming
And swinging when I go. And I thought he was a threshing
And I thought it was a flail When riding with my Dinah
And that old mule's tail.
