Happy Times Passed and Gone Away.
Written and sung by Sam Devere.

Oh, I never shall forget de many happy, happy times,
Dat we spent in Alabama long ago;
When we 'sembled in de evenin' to have a little dance.
And forget about de shovel and de hoe.
Whar de purty little yaller gals joined us in de fun,
Dat lasted till de breakin' of de day:
Oh. I never shall forget it to de longest day I live.
Dem dar happy times passed and gone away.

I feel old time just creeping right along,
I'se getting right old and gray;
But I'd like to show de white folks how I used to dance
In de happy times passed and gone away.

Oh, I like to linger fondly on dem happy, happy days,
And de fun I used to have when I was young;
When we used to come together 'round de little cabin doors.
Oh, de merry, merry songs dat we have sung.
I used to pick de banjo all to pieces in my time.
How de darkies used to like to hear me play;
Oh, dar's no use in talking dey will never come again,
Dem happy times passed and gone away.-Chorus.
