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! RG APR99
