Black Susie

For once I joined a Liverpool ship,
     O roll the cotton down!
We had ord'r to go to New Orleans,
     O roll the cotton down!

There it was, where I first saw a niggerwench,
     O roll the cotton down!
Her name was Sue and was liked by the crew,
     O roll the cotton down!

And dark-eyed Susie came on board,
And she said to the captain: how do you do?

And up aloft his chronometer flew,
And she winked with her eyes to the chief mate too,

I think I heard the captain say:
Another pull and then belay!
