Negro Poems, Melodies
THE STEAMBOAT RIDE
All aboard the Natchez,
All aboard the Lee, All aboard for Vicksburg,
Or Memphis, Tennessee: They're tugging on the hawser
And tugging on the tide And it's all aboard the steamboat
For a steamboat ride.
Now she blowrs the whistle
And now she blows the steam, Now she's on the river
And going down the stream: They're going down the river
And running with the tide And it's all aboard the steamboat
For a steamboat ride.
Now they're in the current
And racing like a team, Smoking are the funnels
And busy is the beam: They're going down the river
And going with the tide And it's all aboard the steamboat
For a steamboat ride.
