But. alas ! my Dinah now is dead,
(De pride ob ole Virginny !) No oder gal like her I'll find—
I know dar is not any. I'll set beneafde shady trees,
And make de banjo sound ; And dar I'll watch my Dinah's grave,
On ole Virginny's ground,
I'm setting on de rail, Dinah, &c.
Composed aod eung by Charles White, the famous Ethiopian Delineator.
At early dawn de niggers wakes,
Puts on his ole attire, An thro' de fields his way he takes,
To labor for no hire.
Chorus, All natur smiles to see him grin and While hoeing ob de corn; repeat. Its only when he h^ars de sound, Ob datole dinner horn, De dinner born, de dinner horn, dinner horn.
At noon, when no dark clouds obscure
De sun dat shines so hot, De nigger den leans on his hoe,
An cuss his tiresome lot.
