(in whispers)

Even Jesus give Old Joe a pass to the Pearlie Gates

Den, why dey string him up?

Dey needed a n***** satisfy somebody

But Old Joe?

He a n***** aint he?

Why somebody need to be satisfy?

Hear Boss wanted some buck breakin
Mistake an broke dat boy neck

Hear Missus got wind

She like dat boy for herself

I’d seen dat, Sho nuff

She neva like da way Old Joe smooth things

She say, “N***** Please” when he start up

Boss took to satisfy hisself and Missus by hangin’ Old Joe

Jesus, lawd of mercy
