GOIN' TO THE FAIR
By M. Phelps Dawson.
All the folks that's anythin' is goin' to the Fair,
En I shall go if I kin sell my little sorrel mare.
I can't toot, es some folks do, or on a banjo play,
Or dance or do a bang-up thing to help me pay my way.
I hain't anythin' to show the fair folks keers to see.
I hain't on no committee, so there's nuthin' left, for me
But jest to Bell my sorrei mare and with the money go.
My soul with great big rapture filled, to the great Chicago show.
