Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
FORTY ACRES AND A MULE
Forty acres and a muleó
A little warm a little cool,
A little cabin and a floor,
A little flower round the door;
A little well, a little tree,
A little sky for all to see,
A little porker in a pen,
A little rooster and a hen;
Some sweet potatoes and a yam,
A big fat possum and a ham,
And why should Sambo want to roam
From that fohty and that home?
Forty acres and a mule, A little cabin and a school, Pickaninnies on the floor And a Mammy watching o'er; A patch of clover and of wheat, A honey hive of honey sweet, A field of cotton and of corn, A blackbird singing in the morn; A little cloud, a little rain, A little road, a little lane, And wouldn't Sambo be a fool To leave that fohty and that mule ?
