And also from Dave Ruch:
The House Carpenter (fragment) by Celia Kelter, Tabasco, NY
If you'll forsake your house carpenter
And go along with me.
What have you got to support me on
And to keep me from slavery?
Don't you see those yonder ships,
As bright as bright can be,
I will make you the mistress of them all
If you will follow me.
Dave says: "Celia Kelter was 73 years old in October 1950 when she was recorded by folklorist/collector Sam Eskin. She was a lifelong resident of the town of Tabasco NY in Ulster County in the Catskills." [She was born in 1877.]
