Old Log Cabin

Old Log Cabin By The Stream. Or Uncle Joe.

Oh! they call me Uncle Joe,
I was bred and born you know,
In a pleasant spot not so far away from here;
When I think of days gone by,
It almost makes me cry,
For my birth-place that I’ve always loved so dear
I used to play the banjo, just beside the cabin door,
And watch the children dancing on the green;
But them days are past and gone,
And they never will return,
Since I’ve left my old log cabin by the stream.

Oh! I know I soon shall die,
And it almost makes me cry,
When I’ve got to leave the sport where I was born;
I have traveled far alone,
Just to see my dear old home.
But I thought that all the colored folks had gone,
But now I think I’m wrong,
Yet I’ll sing my little song;
For everything to me seems like a dream.
When the darkies hear my voice,
It will make their hearts rejoice,
For I’ve came to see my cabin by the stream.
