Sandy Land 

Texas folk song dating to slavery times, recorded on Bound to Go. 

Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sandy land 
Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sand land 

Sift the meal and save the bran 
Mighty good livin' in sandy land 
Big buck diggin' in the sandy land 
Raise big taters in the sandy land 

Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sandy land 
Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sand land 

Big fat possum up a simmon tree 
Make a big supper for you and me 
Hurry up, boys in sandy land 
Big fat possum up a simmon tree 

Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sandy land 
Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sand land 

Make a good livin' in sandy land 
Lots of pretty gals in sandy land 
Right and left in sandy land 
On to the next in sandy land 

Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sandy land 
Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sand land 

Dinah has a wooden leg, so they say 
Shake that wooden leg, Dinah-O 
Sal has a meat skin stowed away 
To grease that wooden leg, so they say 

Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sandy land 
Big yam taters in the sandy land 
Sandy bottom, sand land
