VERSE 01: I plays de banjo better now/Dan him dat taught me do,/Because he plays for all de worl’,/An’ I jes’ plays for you.
VERSE 02: He learns his chunes-I jes’ lets down/A banjo-string or two/Into de deepest of my heart,/An’ draws up chunes for you.
VERSE 03: Slowly dey comes swingin’ up,/A-quiv’rin’ through an’ through,/Til wid a rush of tinglin’ notes/Dey reaches light-an’ you.
VERSE 04: I never knows if dey will shine/Wet wid tears or dew/I only knows dat, dew or tears,/Dey shine because of you.
