Captain, Captain!

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the album Trouble in Mind (1961) and on the compilation album Captain, Captain! - Texas Songster Vol. 3 (1998).

As' my captain
What time o' day
As' my Captain
What time o' day
He just look at his watchman
An' he walk away

Wouldn't mind working
Captain, from sun to sun

Wouldn't mind working
Captain, from sun to sun
Long as you pay me my money, Captain
When payday come

Tol' my Captain
That ol' Maude was dead
Tol' my Captain
Ol' Maude da Mool was dead
"Nigger, don't mind that ol' mule. Whoop the harness on Ned"

Went all 'round
That ol' whole corral
All 'round
That ol' whole corral
Lord, couldn't find a mool
Wit' his shoulders well

Two years ain't long
Six months ain't no great long time
Two years ain't long
Six months ain't no great long time
Got a friend in penitention doing nin'y-nine

Oughta been down on the river
In the year nineteen and ten
Oughta been down on the river
Year: nineteen and ten
Women wo' the ball and chain
Jus' like the men
