Keemo Kimo - 2nd South Carolina String Band lyrics


In South Carolina the darkies go,
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
That's where the white folks plant the tow.
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
Cover the ground all over with smoke,
Sing song Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
And up the darkies' heads they poke.
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!

Chorus:
Kemo, kimo! There! oh where?--
With a hi, and a ho, and a in come Sally, singing
Sometimes penny winkle, lingtum, nipcat,
Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!

[similarly:]

Sometimes things just go all wrong
The cotton grows short instead of long
Whatícha gonna do if it donít rain at all
Things grow short instead of tall

Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!

Thereís milk in the dairy nine days old,
The frogs and the 'skeeters getting mighty bold,
We try for to sleep, but it ain't no use,
They hop all around in the chicken roost.

Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
Chorus.

There was a frog he lived in a pool,
Sure he was the biggest fool,
For he could dance, and he could sing,
And make all the woods around him ring.

Sing song, Kitty, can't you ki' me, oh!
Chorus.
