Little Log Hut In The Lane

[A]Mamma says, she don’t want me, be[D]cause I’m getting [A]old,

fears that I might freeze to death the weat[E]her is so cold.

[A]If I live tonight I [D]think I will [A]try,

when the moon goes down tonight I’m a [E]gonna say good[A]bye.


I’m [A]goin from the cotton fields, I’m goin from the [E]cane,

I’m [A]goin from that [D]little log [A]hut that stands down [E]in the [A]lane.


Now I’m old and feeble and I cannot see my way,

Mamma says, I’m old and gray and only in the way.

I’m leaving the little log hut, the place I love to dwell.

when the stars shine bright tonight I’m a gonna bid farewell.
