NEGRO FOLK-SONGS
MISTER RABBIT
"Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit, Yo' coat might)' grey." "Yes, my lawd,
3T was made dat way.
Every little soul must shine, shine, shi-ine, Every little soul must shi-ine, shine, shine."
"Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit, Yo* feet mighty red." "Yes, my lawd,
I'm a-almost dead.
Every little soul must shine, shine, shi-ine, Every little soul must shi-ine, shine, shine."
"Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit, Yo* tail mighty white." "Yes, my lawd,
An' I'm a-gittin' out o' sight.
Every little soul must shine, shine, shi-ine, Every little soul must shi-ine, shine, shine."
Another song about this engaging young person was sent in by Wirt Williams, of Mississippi, as sung by Anna Gwinn Pickens.
Ole Mister Rabbit
Ole Mister Rabbit, You're in a mighty habit, Gwine in mah garden, Cuttin' down mah cabbage. Urn-hum—urn-hum.
