Once I could laugh and play,
When in life's early day;
Then I was far away,
Down among the cane-brakes.
Down among the cane-brakes
On the Mississippi shore.
Oh! those happy days,
Those happy days are o'er!
Oh! those happy days
Will come back no more!
2. Yes I was free from care;
All was bright summer there;
Dark days to me were fair,
Down among the cane-brakes.
Down among the cane-brakes
On the Mississippi shore.
Oh! those happy days,
Those happy days are o'er!
Oh! those happy days
Will come back no more!
