No local title
Soldier by the road one day Standing there all bright and gay On his back a sack of meal He had stole from an ol' tar heel,
By and bye.

They are smoother'n sorgham molasses Bye and bye.
He built his fire, he baked his bread When he's done he laughed and said In all this world there's none surpassin' A good cornbread and a sorgham molasses Bye and bye.
