Never Trust a Nigger With a Gun.
Copyright, 1886, by Robert Fruin.

Now I read de other day, George Washington did say.
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
An' I thought it very queer, dat a man we loved so dear,
Would never trust a nigger with a gun.
But times have changed since den, an likewise have de men,
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
De darkies now am free, an' I would like to see.
Who'd never trust a nigger with a gun.

Chorus.
Den don't you worry, children, don't worry,
Darkies, don't worry, dey-'ll trust you with a gun;
For ain't you seen de colored folks when dey were on parade,
Wid heads erect, for line an' step de whites are in de shade;
For dey're not only drilled for show, dey fight an' never run,
De people learned dis much, I know, to trust 'em with a gun.

Now one thing I would advise if de anarchists should rise,
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
If dey try Chicago here it will cost dem very dear,
So never trust a nigger with a gun;
You bet you'll hear dem yell as we darkies give 'em-well.
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
We'll finish up de story by sending 'em to glory,
So never trust a nigger with a gun.-Chorus.

Now de black man he can fight as well as any white.
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
An' history will show how brave he faced de foe.
Oh, never trust a nigger with a gun;
Now when de war broke out did anybody shout.
Never trust a nigger with a gun;
Dey sent him to de front, an' made him stand de brunt.
You bet dey'll trust a nigger with a gun.-Chorus.
