“The Dummer Sheener's Gang”


"I'll sing you a song of a sheener's gang, I've got 'em all taped up to a man, There's long and short and thin and fat, But every man knows just what he's at." Each man's work is listed, from Jimmy Bailey "who runs the concern" to the lowest corn-fetcher


Just in case it isn't obvious, this is a moonshining song. - RBW
