WORK-SONGS
211
The workers on the sugar plantations in southern Louisiana have their songs, as one given me by Alvin Belden, of New Orleans. The "row" referred to here is the long line of young cane, though it might as well be a row of cotton or corn.
ROW AFTER ROW
I'm a-thinkin' of you, honey,
Thinkin' 'case I love you so,
An' my heart keeps thumpin' an' a-thumpin',
As I hoe down row after row.
