No. 122
The Old Grey Mare
2   When I got there she got tired; She laid down in an old court-yard.
3  Then they begin to sing and pray; She jumped up and run away.
4   Then I went down the road on her track; Found her in a mud-hole flat on her back.
5   Then I begin to fee] very stout;
Seized her by the tail and jerked her out
6  Then I begin to think it no sin; Jerked my knife and begin to skin.
7   Then I put her old hide in a loft; Up came a nigger and stole it off.
