The Old Plantations Lonely
Sung with great success by Billy Tennyson.

Oh, the old plantation's lonely now to what it used to be,
And the place is just as silent as the tomb,
Where we used to hear the mocking bird a-singing in the tree.
In the land where the sweet magnolias bloom;
But no longer do you hear the darkeys singing in the cane
As they used to do in the happy days of yore;
For old master's gone and left us in this weary world of pain,
And he'll never hear the darkeys sing no more.

Chorus.
But no longer do you hear the darkeys singing in the cane
As they used to do in the happy days of yore;
For old master's gone and left us in this weary world of pain,
And he'll never hear the darkeys sing no more.

Oh, the old plantation's lonely now to what it used to be:
Still I can't forget the place where I was born;
But before old master passed away he set us darkeys free,
And we work no more among the growing corn.
You can never hear the dinner horn a-blowing when 'tis noon,
You will never hear old master's voice no more,
You will never see us hunting for the possum and the coon
As we used to do in the happy days of yore.-Chorus.
