Oh, Green Fields, Roxie Oh green fields, Roxie Oh green fields, Roxie Tell me who you love, Roxie Tell me who you love, Roxie Oh (Miss Mable*), your name is called Come and take a seat right beside your love Shake his hand and let him go Don't let him sit in that chair no mo'. *or whoever is chosen From Step It Down, Bessie Jones and Bess Lomax Hawes Note: a playparty game. There's a chair in the middle of a ring; person in the chair sits next to the leader or caller. On "Tell me who you love", person in chair whispers name of someone in the ring to caller; on "Oh Mis..." caller sings that name. Person chosen comes out and stands beside chair; on last line, chosen one changes place with person in chair, who joins the ring. RG
