Hi. I am looking for a Negro work song from the Carolinas called "Rain or Shine." Anyone know it? It's refrain has the same phraseology as an old cowboy song
    Rain or shine
    Sleet or snow
    When I gits done dis time
    Won't work no mo.

Thanks in advance Sue

From American Poetry from the Beginning to Whitman by Louis Untermeyer (New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1931), page 748:


RAIN OR SHINE

I hoes an' I plows
In all kinds o' weather.
I got to keep a-goin'
'Cause I can't do no better.

Rain or shine,
Sleet or snow,
When I gits done dis time,
Won't work no mo'.

Empty or full,
Sleep or 'wake,
I'm gwine to de party,
Dance fer dat cake.
