White folks sittin in the parlor, Eatin that cake and food, Niggers way down to the kitchen, Squabblin over turnip greens. Times is gettin harder, Moneys gettin scarce. Soon as I gather my cotton and corn, Im bound to leave this place. Me and my brother was out. Thought wed have some fun. He stole three chickens. We began to run. Times is gettin harder, Moneys gettin scarce. Soon as I gather my cotton and corn Im bound to leave this place.
