Reel 342, Item 26
Told My Captain
Told my captain my hands were cold Said damn your hands boy Let the wheeling roll
Raise my hand to wipe the sweat from my head Captain got mad Lord And shot my buddy dead.
My buddy fell back Lord
On the cold cold ground
The captain just laughed Lord
When he went down
Now if you don't believe
That my buddy is dead
Just take a look at
That hole in his head.
Some day when I do my time I'm gonna whip that captain Till he goes stone blind.
