Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
SONGS OF DIXIE
There are songs of Dixie
That everybody knows, I wish I was in Dixie
And where the Swanee flows; But the song I like in Dixie
Is not the river's foam, But a cabin in the clearing
And home sweet home.
I want not Massa's mansion,
His oxen or his sheep, But oh I want a cabin
Where I can rest and sleep; For the song I love in Dixie
Is not the river's foam, But a cabin in the clearing
And home sweet home.
A PLAINTIVE MELODY
Massa got chickens, Massa got shoats, Massa got cornfields, Massa got oats; Massa got a nigger, nigger got a hoe, Working, working, everywhere you go.
Massa got chillun, Massa got clothes, Massa got fire, Massa got those; Massa got a nigger, nigger got a hoe, Working, working, everywhere you go.
