John Cherokee

John Cherokee was an Indian man,
Alabama, John Cherokee!
He run away every time he can.
Alabama, John Cherokee! Way, Hey, Yah!

Alabama, John Cherokee! Way, Hey, Yah!
Alabama, John Cherokee!

They put him a-board a Yankee ship,
Again he give the Boss a slip.

They catch him again and chain him tight,
And starve him many a day and night.

Nothing to drink and nothing to eat,
He just fall dead at the boss’s feet.

So they bury him by the old gate post,
The very same day you can see his ghost.
