NEGRO FOLK-SONGS
And have you brought my gold? And will you pay my fee? Or is it your intention to see me hung Here all under this willow tree?
{Mother to Son)
Yes, I Ve come, I 've come.
I have not brought your gold.
I will not pay your fee.
'T is my intention to see you hung
Here all under this willow tree.
(Spies Brother)
Hangman, hangman, hangman,
Loosen your rope.
I think I spy my brother coming.
He has come many a long weary mile, I know.
(To Brother)
Brother, have you come?
And have you come at last?
And have you brought my gold?
And will you pay my fee?
Or is it your intention to see me hung
Here all under this willow tree?
(Brother to Brother)
Yes, I 've come, I ?ve come.
I have not brought your gold.
I will not pay your fee.
'T is my intention to see you hung
Here all under this willow tree.
(Spies Sister) Hangman, hangman, hangman, Loosen your rope. I think I spy my sister coming. She has come many a long weary mile, I know.
(To Sister)
Sister, have you come?
And have you come at last?
And have you brought my gold?
And will you pay my fee?
Or is it your intention to see me hung
Here all under this willow tree?
