Negro Poems, Melodies
A moonlight night in Dixie,
A moonlight night to dream, Moonlight with its glimmer
And moonlight writh its gleam ; And when thinking of my childhood
My heart in fondness goes, Back to sunny Dixie
Where the Swanee river flows.
THE SUN DO MOVE
The world am round
And the world am flat, And we'll let it goŚ
On its way at that; "But praise the Lawd
For I can prove," Said old brother Jasper,
"That the sun do move."
Joshua madeŚ
The sun stand still, While he fought the fight
On the holy hill ; "But praise the Lawd
For I can prove," Said old brother Jasper,
"That the sun do move."
