Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
MANDY
I know a buxom
And Mandy's her name, Her eyes are like opals,
Her teeth are the same; Her lips are like rubies
Now scarlet now flame, I know a buxom
And Mandy's her name.
I know a buxom
And Mandy's her name, From magnolia and moonlight
And Dixie she came; Her voice is like music,
Her smile is the same, I know a buxom
And Mandy's her name.
THE NIGGER
The Lord He made the nigger And He made him in the night,
He made him for the sunshine And He made him for the light.
He took a piece of cotton And He stuck it in his eye,
And you'll always see a nigger Like a cloud roll by.
