Songs That Every Child Should Know 61
They hunt no more for the possum and the coon
On the meadow, the hill, and the shore; They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon
On the bench by the old cabin door. The days go by like a shadow o'er the heart,
With sorrow where all was delight; The time has come when the darkies have to part,
Then my old Kentucky Home, good night! Weep no more, etc.
The head must bow and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the darky may go; A few more days, and the trouble all will end,
In the field where the sugar canes grow; A few more days for to tote the weary load,
No matter, 't will never be light; A few more days till we totter in the road,
Then my old Kentucky Home, good night! Weep no more, etc.
