From the Gordon "Inferno" Collection:

Accompanying note: "Sung in 1908 in Georgia near Atlanta--work song, cotton picking."


Me and my gal a goin' cross de field
Kicking up dust like a automobile.

Uncle Bud, Uncle Bud,
Who in hell is Uncle Bud?

Me an' my gal went a huckleberry huntin'
She fell down and I saw somethin'.

Big cat, little cat, teeny insey kitten
And de little cat farted like a nachul man.

Uncle Bud had forty-nine children

Corn pone and taters, chicken and ham
Cornfed nigger and nachul man.
