American Ballads and Folk Songs
Listen to my story j Seems like yesterday night Jim went down to de hop house, And that was the start of the fight. Long are de years, yes, long!
Oh, my God, how I hate her! An' I know she done it, too— Cut his head mos' off'n his neck An' whut fer he never knew. Long, oh, long, are de years!
Big Jim's dead an' gone nowj Listen to my song. Some day I'll be goin' too, An' I hope it won't be long— Long, long, long are de years!
