The Hog-Eye Man

1

O the hog-eye men are all the go,
When they come down to old San Francisco.

Chorus:
And a hog-eye, railroad nigger with his hog-eye,
Row the boat ashore, and a hog-eye, O,
She wants the hog-eye man.

2

O the hog-eye man is the man for me,
He works all day on the big levee.

3

Now who's been here since I been gone?
A railroad nigger with his sea-boots on.

4

Go bring me down my riding cane,
For I'm going to see my darling Jane.

5

O Sally in the garden picking peas,
Her golden hair hanging down to her knees.
