NEW COON'S DONE GONE.
Copyright, 1887, by Balmer & Weber Music House Co.
Words and Music by C. H. Sheffer.
New coon's done gone, left the other day,
Broke all the jailer gal's hearts before he ran away;
He told me that he loved me, on me he did dote;
he borrowed my watch and chain, in the morning I got a note:
New coon's done gone, new coon's done gone,
New coon he left the other day;
Diamond, watch and chain; he took dat eight-ten train,
Dat new coon am done gone and run away.
New coon's done gone, what do you think he done?
Run away with a man's wife, the big, black son of a gun;
He was a gay deceiver, away from me he slid;
I heard he had eleven wives and fifteen nigger kids.-Chorus.
