OLD PLANTATION David Nape / James Royce Shannon / Mary Montano as rec by Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm March 18th 1937 New York also rec by- Ivie Anderson & her Boys From Dixie (Duke Ellington & his Orch) '37 Bing Crosby w Nelson Riddle & his Orch '63 (scat) Yes yes! There's an old plantation in the beautiful south; On that old plantation are the folks I'm longin' to see! There's an old log cabin in the beautiful south; In that old log cabin there's a sweetheart waiting for me, yes yes! But it won't be long Till I hear that song Ringin' in the fields of cotton; Oh, how I'll rejoice When I hear that voice Singin', "Baby son, you're not forgotte, oh no!". There's an old plantation in the beautiful south; On that old plantation, the place I'm longin' to be! Oh, I know I'm not forgotten! There's an old plantation in the beautiful south; In the old plantation, that's the place I'm longin' to be, longin' to be, yes! Drop the plough! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2011)
