"NO MORE AUCTION BLOCK FOR ME
"

from « The Jubilee Singers »
by Gustavus D. Pike, 1873
and quoted in « The Music of Black Americans. A History »
by E. Southern, 1983

No more auction block for me
No more, no more
No more auction block for me
Many thousand gone

 No more peck of corn for me…

 No more driver’s lash for me…

 No more pint of salt for me…

 No more hundred lash for me…

 No more mistress’ call for me…
