Cat. #0607 (MFH #668) - As sung by Boyce Davis, Lincloln, Arkansas on January 13, 1968

VERSE 1
Well, there was an ole darkey
By th name of Uncle Ned
Lived mighty long time ago
Had no wool on th top of his head
In th place where th wool oughta' go

VERSE 2
Hang up th shovel an' the hoe, hoe, hoe
Hang up th fiddle an' th bow
There'll be no more work for poor ole Uncle Ned
He's gone wehre th good darkies go

Boyce said he learned from his Grandmother
