Words and Music by J. F. Lamb. Arranged by Gus. Gebert.

De time is now long past when I was but a lad,
And worked among the cotton fields and corn,
My heart was never sad, for de boys would make me glad,
Dey'd be singing as they rush the work along.
When deir work it was o'er dey would dance upon the floor,
Let me hear de banjo ringing now as den;
Dere Is one request I make, just before die life I pass,
Let me see de old plantation once again.

Let me see de old plantation once again,
It will drive away from me all care and pain;
With an open heart and soul to my Maker den would go,
If I see de old plantation once again.

'Twas just in "sixty-three" when we darkles were set free,
Since den we learned what sorrow was for sure;
We lost our good old homes, and our happy times were gone,
For to live we were obliged this world to roam.
Now dat I am old and weak, my life-gates soon will close,
I've a soul dat will be judged like all of men;
But before dat does take place, dere's one wish I'd like to make,
Let me see de old plantation once again. -Refrain.
