     F             Bb
When I was young I use' to wait
   F         C7       Gm7 C7
On massa an' hand him his plate
    F                   Bb 
An' pass de bottle when he got dry
    C7            F
An' brush away de blue-tail fly


Jimmie crack corn an' I don't care
Jimmie crack corn an' I don't care
Jimmie crack corn an' I don't care
    C7           F
Ol' Massa's gone away

One day he ride aroun' de farm
De flies so num'rous they did swarm
One chanced to bite him on de thigh
De devil take de blue-tail fly!


De pony run, he jump he pitch
He threw my Massa in de ditch
He died an' de jury wondered why
De verdict was de blue-tail fly


They lay him under a simmon tree
His epitaph is there to see --
"Beneath this stone I'm forced to lie -- 
Victim of de blue-tail fly."
