Sung by: Sara Jo Fendley

Bring along your Jimmy-john.
Rye bread, dry bread,
Do to choke a nigger on.
Went up the road,
And I saw the dust a-rising.
A four-horse team,
And a nigger up a-driving.
(Mrs. Fendley: "That's all I know of that one."
Dr. Wolf: What is that, a banjo piece?"
Mrs. Fendley: "I don't know what that is, but that's the first
. . . Just about everybody around here can play that one song on the banjo.")
