Words by Leander Richardson Music by Andrew Mack.

When the early dawn am breaktin' and the niggers am awakin',
In ma veins the pulse of love am beatin' strong.
Then the day looks cold an' dreary, an' my life am dark an' weary,
An' ma ears am ever ringin' with the song:

I'm a longin' for you, sweetest girl, I'm a longin' for you, neatest girl,
I'm a longin' in ma arms to hold you tight:
To ma breast I want to press you, dear. I'm a yearnin' to caress you, dear
You're ma sweetest girl, ma honey m-m-m ma delight.

When the noon-day sun's a quiver, an' I doze beside the river,
An' the bumblebees am hummin' in the lane.
Then I'm dreamin' of you only, an' the universe am lonely,
An' the water sings to me the old refrain:- Chorus.

When the cattle am a lowin', an' the night wind am a blowin',
An' the stars am blinkin' gently at the moon,
Then ma heart grows sad an' tender, spite of all the silv'ry splendor,
An' ma soul am all a shiver with the tune.-Chorus.
