Negro Poems, Melodies
Massa got oxen, Massa got a plough, Massa got cotton, cotton grow now, Massa got a nigger, nigger got a hoe, Working, working, everywhere you go.
Massa got a Sunday, Massa got a God, Massa got a heaven, Massa got a rod; Massa got a nigger, nigger got a hoe, Working, working, everywhere you go.
THE SUNFLOWER
There's a flower in the garden—
A flower that I know, It has a golden glory
And it has a golden glow; Shiny are its features
And golden is its hair, And it is the happy sunflower
That I see there.
There's a flower in the garden—
A flower big and bright, The glory of the morning
And the splendor of the night; Radiant are its features
And its face is fair, And it is the happy sunflower
That I see there.
