Words and Music by Charles F. Jeromo.

'Twas at a 'possum dinner, given by Matilda skinner,
That, first I met Miss Ruby Anna Brown;
She's six foot tall and skinny, all the way from old Virginny
She broke the hearts of all the coons in town.
Twos dancing in the lancers, the gayest of all dancers,
I squeezed her hand-she fainted dead away.
When she came two or three, she threw a glance at me;
"I love my honey boy," I heard her say.

Oh, I done kissed my honey In the bright moonlight,
I done kissed my honey when the stars shone bright;
I'll never leave you honey, your true love I'll remain-
I pat my arms around my babe and kissed her once again.

When dinner It was over, and the coons were all In clover,
A crap came it was started on the spot;
The coons that had the price were speculating with the dice,
And the way I lost my stuff it made me hot.
"Come seven, come eleven, come down from nigger heaven,
My baby warns a new dress very soon."
Miss Ruby she did grin; I collared all the tin-
Sue christened me her little sporty coon.-Chorus.
