These old Jim Crow-isms dead bad luck for me an' you.
I been trav-lin', i been trav-lin' from sho' to sho';
Ev-'ry where I have been I find some old Jim Crow.
One thing, people, I want ev'rybody to know,
You gonna find some Jim Crow ev'ry place you go.
Down in Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia's a mighty good place to go,
An' get together, break up this old Jim Crow.
I told everybody over the radio,
Make up their mind an' get together, break up this old Jim Crow.
I want to tell you people somethin' that you don't know,
It's a lotta Jim Crow in a movin' picture show.
I'm gonna sing this verse, I ain't gonna sing no more,
Please get together, break up this old Jim Crow.
