Christy's plantation melodies.            41
Oh, shall we go a-sleighing, a-sleighing, a-sleighing? The white horse shall pull us o'er the snow-covered plain; On good whiskey punch, cakes and sausages regaling, Oh, then we will slope to our homes back again.
Chorus. Jingle, jingle, &c.
The trees of the forest, sleigh-runners shall lend us, With an acorn cap, and an oak-bark shell;
With coon-skins to warm us, and bells to attend us, 0 merrily we glide to the sound of the bell.
Chorus. Jingle, jingle, &c.
Jingle, jingle, on we go, Capes and bonnets in a row; The old whip snaps, the girls all funny, Hurry up that peach and honey. See the old horse how he blows Like a steam-pipe from his nose, And the boys their snow-balls fling, As the merry sleigh-bells ring.
Chorus. Jingle, jingle, &c.
Dinah's Wedding Day.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by Vander-
beek, New York.
Huzza, huzza, the day has come, Miss Dinah's to be
married, Oh, glad am I, for that's a fact, for very long she's
tarried; Bring out the corn, the hoe-cake too, the gumbo and
the cream, And don't forget the wedding-cake, on which each
dark' must dream. 4*
