Stephen Collins Foster 1847

Oh! Lou'siana's de same old state,
Whar Massa us'd to dwell;
He had a lubbly cullid gal,
'Twas the Lou'siana Belle.

Oh! Belle, don't you tell,
Don't tell Massa, don't you, Belle.
Oh! Belle, de Lou'siana Belle,
I's gwine to marry you, Lou'siana Belle.

I went to de ball de odder night,
I cut a mighty swell;
I danc'd the Polka pigeonwing
Wid de Lou'siana Belle.


Dere's a Dandy Jim ob Caroline
I know's him by de swell,
Tryin' to come it mighty fine,
Wid de Lou'siana Belle.


Dere's first de B and den de E,
And den de double LL,
Anodder E to de end ob dat,
Spell's Lou'siana Belle.

Sung by Tom Roush, youtube and on cd.

One of several minstrel songs from slavery days in which Massa is not informed of the activities of his slave.

Tom Roush's excellent period cds are available through his website. They are not sold by Amazon, etc.
