Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Pretty Quadroon
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My Pretty Quadroon
pretty quadroon is listed on the soundtrack for jezebel but i don't recall hearing the song in the film.I am trying to trace a song from the same film sun by a group of negro slaves which went something like:-come back my suzy gal,come back my honey
.come back my suzy gal,bring back my money
if i live until next spring,susan james,susan james
buy my love a wedding ring
if i live until next fall?
if somebody steals your lover?
These are all the words i have and some may be wrong.The song was interrupted by bette davis to sing 'raise a ruckus tonight'
