THE BANJO
The banjo, banjo, banjo bring, Let the banjo, banjo ring, For my spirit only sings When the banjo, banjo rings.
The banjo, banjo bring,
Let the banjo, banjo ring,
Then I'm crowned among the kings
When the banjo, banjo rings.
BRUSH DEM TEARS AWAY
The darkies weep and the darkies pray, Brush, oh brush dem tears away, Bring in a chicken on a tray, Brush, oh brush dem tears away.
And then a big watermelon in the same way, Brush, oh brush dem tears away, And when they are through you will hear them say All dem tears am brushed away.
