Coll. by M.C. Parler Told by Mrs. Theresa Warren
Nov. 14, 1953
There was a man whose son had died and he was away from
home when he died. So he (the father) prayed and he prayed and
he prayed that he might see his son "jus' like he be, one mo'
time. Jus' like he be. Lawd, le' me see my son one mo' time
jus' like he be.
So there were some mischievous boys heard Uncle Remus out
of the window, praying that he would see his son "jus' like he
be one mo' time." And they decided they'd let him see his son
one more time. So they wrapped themselves in a sheet and got into
the house w e r e the old man was - by some hook or crook
And the old man went in to pray again. He prayed, "Lawd,
jus' let me see my son jus' like he be one mo' time."
And the boy approached him, and as he approached - the ghost
came on up, and the man said, "Uh-huh! Uh-huh! I see you now,
Son. Da's right nice! I see yuh! You kin go back nah. Go back!"
He came on. He still came.He say "I tol' yuh to go back!
Go back nah! Go right back 'cause I * Go back home! Git wheh
you was, cause I done seen yuh, an' dass enough!"
And he came back; he just came on. And he said," Dass why
you dead, you so ha'd-headed!"
