POPULAR SONGS. 103
And wanted to be put asho ! De boat went down, and Sally too—
De gal she swum jest like a stone— I reached de bank in grief and woe,
For Sally she was dead and gone !
Oh ! I'm gwan down, &c.
IN DE DARKEY'S LIFE YOU READ,
In de darkey's life you may read,
De life dat niggers like to lead-Through the wild field we rove,
Be it moonshine or clear, For de coon hunt we love, An' de beasts we don't fear ;
Sometimes in de holler, or in do wood, All around we creep an' stare
An' if he's not home, wait till he cum ; We'll find him out somewhar.
'Tis the white hunter's plan,
To track out all game, Dan ketch all he can,
An' we do the same ; We'll foller up and foller down,
An' each nig creep an' stare, An' if he's not home, wait till he cum,
We'll find him out somewhar.
