About this Item

Single sheet, 3 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. A bit crinkled, somewhat tanned. Else very good. British song sheet with a crude woodcut vignette of two figures, one black, the other a white sailor smoking, next to a barrel of rum. The minstrel theme and song follows: "I hab just come down on a little bit ob spree, / And I'm berry well acquainted wid de gals I come to see, / I went to de house, but dey was all gone to bed, / And out of the winder a colour'd lady said, / 'Who is dat knocking at de door?'" The rest of the lyrics, though somewhat different, clearly show the origin of the well known modern rock song, "I hear you knocking, but you can't come in.". Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 23861
