Negro Poems, Melodies
WHEN THE STEAMBOAT COMES ALONG
Captain blow the whistle—
Captain blow it long, For I want to hear the whistle
When the steamboat comes along.
Captain blow the whistle
Let it sing a song— For I want to hear the whistle
When the steamboat comes along.
The tide is running seaward— And the tide is running strong,
But I want to hear the whistle
When the steamboat comes along.
The driftwood and the sand bar They sound the signal gong,
And you always hear the whistle When the steamboat comes along.
So Captain blow the whistle— And Captain don't be long,
For I want to hear the whistle
When the steamboat comes along.
