Ham and Eggs

 

Ham and eggs, pork and beans,
I would eat more but the cook wasn’t clean.

I got to Roll, Roll and Hurry
To make it to the side of the road

If I had known my captain was bad,
Would not sold that special that I once have had.

If I had known my captain was blind,
I wouldn’t a went to work boys, till the clock struck nine.

I looked over that lone corral
Tryin’ to find that mule with a shoulder well.

If I’d a know my captain was mean
I wouldn’t a left, St. Augustine

If I had known my captain was tall,
Wouldn’t have gone to work, till I’d saved them all (?)

If I had known that man wasn’t there
I wouldn’t gone to work, boys, till he gone back.
