LOWLANDS (4)

Lowlands, lowlands, away, my John
Oh my old mother, she wrote to me
My dollar and a half a day
She wrote to me to come back from sea

Lowlands, lowlands, away, my John
A dollar and a half is black man's pay
My dollar and a half a day
Five dollars a day is white man's pay

Lowlands, lowlands, away, my John
The white man's pay is rather high
My dollar and a half a day
The black man's pay is rather low

Lowlands, lowlands, away, my John
