Negro Poems, Melodies
Early next morning on the parson's stoop There hung a fat pullet from a neighbor's coop, And written on a paper in a tremulous print Was this transcript of the parson's hint: Here am the chicken for the pahson's dinner And it's up to the pahson to save that sinner.
THE COTTON FIELDS OF GEORGIA
The fields are bright, and the fields are white
Down on the old plantation, And the darkies chant, and the darkies pant
Some lullaby incantation; And the blossoms blow, and the blossoms grow
And the fields are all in order, And down the row—the darkies go,
In the cotton fields of Georgia.
The blackbird swings, and the blackbird sings
His morning incantation, And the hawthorn white, is a cheery sight,
Down on the old plantation; And the blossoms blow and the blossoms grow
And the fields are all in order, And down the row—the darkies go,
In the cotton fields of Georgia.
