Words And Music by A. S. MacKenzie.
Dar's a new coon weddin' in de town-
Spread de news for miles around,
For oh! Professor Johnson and his banjo will be dar;
Tell all the yeller gals to fix And curl their har,
Tell Bill Jones to fetch along de sand.
And we'll dance to the music of Johnson's colored band.
Don't forget Ole Rastus and he sure to bring him 'round,
'Cause dar's a new coon weddin' in de town.
Dar's a new coon weddin' in de town, dar's a new coon weddin' In de town;
Won't we have a high old time, drinking negro gin and wine;
Dar's a new coon weddin' in do town, dar's a new coon weddin' in de town.
Come, see all de yaller gals for many miles around
At de new coon weddin' in de town.
Take my advice afo' you come,
Bring your razor and your gun;
Dar's sure to be trouble, when I'se upon de floor,
I'll keep dem quiet or I'll frow dun out de door.
Ole Bill Jones will shuffle on de sand.
And all de jailer gals will shake for to heat de band;
When dey played de Swannee River, how sweetly it did sonnd
At do new coon weddin' in de town.- Chorus.
