Tom Moore’s Farm

Sam Lightnin' Hopkins
Lingua: Inglese



Yeah, you know it ain't but the one thing
You know this Black man done was wrong
Yeah, you know it ain't but the one thing
You know this Black man done was wrong
Yes, you know I moved my wife and family
Down on Mister Tom Moore's farm

Yeah, you know Mister Tom Moore's a man
He don't never stand and grin
He just said "Keep out of the graveyard I'll
Save you from the pen" you know
Soon in the morning
He'll give you scrambled eggs
Yes, but he's liable to call you so soon
You'll catch a mule by his hind legs

Yes, you know I got a telegram this mornin'
Said my wife was dead.
I show it to Mister Moore
He said, "Go ahead, Lightnin'
You got to plow a ridge."
That white man said, "It's rainin'
An I'm way behin'
I might let you bury that woman, Sam
One of these ol dinner times."

I told him, "No, Mr. Moore!
Somebody's got to go!"
He said, "If you aint able to plow, Sam,
Step down an grab you a hoe."
