Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
THE TWO MASTERS
I had two good masters— Said Rastus Johnson Snow,—
I had two good masters
As you would want to know.
They never shouted flog him,
See he idle stands, But they always cheered me—
These two good old hands.
I always did my duty
When working with the hoe, And round about my labor
They always with me go.
I drove the mules all morning And ploughed the cotton lands,
And happy was the master Of these two old hands.
Massa Right was gentle,
Massa Left was kind, And what the other did do
The other didn't mind.
The Lord was good to Moses, He obeyed the Lord's command,
And I bless the Lord Almighty For dem two old hands.
