Christy's plantation melodies. 55
The darkies all are grinning,
Their teeth look very white, 'Cause they're going over the mountain,
To have a little dance to-night.
Chorus. To have a little dance to-night, &c.
I get up at the break of day,
To take my morning walk; I meets my lovely Julian,
And this is the way we talk.— I say, You are my only love,
You are my heart's delight; Won't you go over the river,
To have a little dance to-night'
Chorus. We'll have a little dance to-night, &c.
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by 1 W.
Oh, place me in that same dear spot
Where lies my Nelly Bell— 'Tis near that well-remembered cot
'Neath the willow in the dell. 'Twas by the side of, the bright rill,
That near her father's old hut door, I heardthe lips of my sweet Nell
Say she loved young Csesar Moore.
Chorus. There, dearest Nell, I oft have met— Dark curls flowed o'er her head— I think I see her dear face yet,
Though she's sleeping with the dead
'Twas on a dark and stormy night,
When riding side the hill, As the lightning flash'd, the horse took fright.
And dashed into the rill.
