De old black crow in de corn field flew,
Caw! caw! caw!
Said he Mister Coon, oh, a how d'ye do?
Caw! caw! caw!
Oh, dar he sit till he eat his fill,
An' he stuffed himself right up to de bill,
An' den he laughed at de whip-poor-will.
Caw! caw! caw!

Den a husk, old lady, shake down, de miller has gone to de mill
Den a sweep dat floor, dere's dancing, oh, come, climb up to de hill;
Come and bring your mother and your aunty and crowd dem niggers to de door
Den a husk, old lady, shake down, caw! caw! caw!

De old black crow see a coon go by,
Caw! caw! caw!
He said, Mister Coon, you are mighty sly,
Caw! caw! caw!
You're just as black as a black can be.
An' de poor white man, oh, he hates you and me,
So, Mister Coon, oh, let me free.
Caw! caw! caw!-Chorus.

De old black crow, oh, he roost so high,
Caw! caw! caw!
he talks mighty loud when he's in de sky.
Caw! caw! caw!
He looks at you, den he looks at me.
Den he flies right down from de old pine tree.
An' den he laugh wid a he, he, he,
Caw! cawl caw!-Chords.
