Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
DID YOU SEE ME
I went riding in a great big car—
Did you, did you, did you see me? I was smoking a very fine cigar—
Did you, did you, did you see me?
All of the girls were waving their hans'
And hidin' their smiles behin' their fans
And I was pityin' dem po' white mans.
Did you, did you, did you see me.
I went walking with Eliza Jane—
Did you, did you, did you see me? Wore a gold ring and a big gold chain,
Did you, did you, did you see me? All of dem coons they had to stare— When they saw me with Eliza there And for their frowns what did I care, Did you, did you, did you see me.
I got acquainted with Doctor Jones— Did you, did you, did you see me? Good morning, Mr. Sam, in his blandest tones,
Did you, did you, did you see me? All the people looked, when he took my han' And wondered to themselves who am that man But I jes' enjoyed the situation an'— = Did you, did you, did you see me.
