THE YANKEE QUILTING-PARTY.                        53
For de dirty work, I swear, Dat has long been goin' on dere, Has bery nearly brought dis place to ruin.
Oh, oh, oh, etc.
"When I first came to dis town, Some twenty years ago,
I was a gay and dashin' little feller; But as I older grew, I saved a dime or two,
And set up whitewash business in a cellar. ^           Oh, oh, oh, etc.
Oh, dere's one thing more I'd say,. Before I go away,                                   *
And dat's about de colored population: If dey had only left 'em alone, In deir good old darkey home,
It would have been better for dis great and glorious nation.
Oh, oh, oh, etc.
It was down at Major Parsons' house,
The gals they had a quilting, Just for to show their handsome looks,
And have a little jilting. There was Deacon Jones's daughter Sal,
And Squire Wheeler's Mary; ' And General Carter's youngest gaL
That looked just like a fairy.
Chorus. Then Yankee lasses all the u-
Niversal airth bewitching; The good and true, and handsome too,
The parlor or the kitchen.
