Stephen Foster, 1849

White folks, I'll sing for you,
Nuffin else to do.
Spend my time a-pickin' on de banjo,
Hay! Brudder Gum.
Chorus:
My Brudder Gum,
My Brudder Gum so fair,
All de yaller gals runnin' 'round,
Try to get a lock ob his hair.

Hab no time to play,
Berry fine time a-diggin' in de cornfield,
Hay! Brudder Gum.
Chorus:

3. Tudder afternoon,
I thought I saw de moon,
Say my true lub comin' through de cane-brake,
Hay! Brudder Gum.
Chorus:

4. Went one berry fine day,
To ride in a one-horse sleigh,
Hollow'd to de old hoss comin' through de toll gate.
Hay! Brudder Gum.
Chorus:
