Frank Hamilton Songs on, or about slavery (120* d) Lyr Add: NO MORE AUCTION BLOCK FOR ME 23 Sep 99


This is quite a wonderful thread with many fine examples. Jack started with his suggestion:

No more auction block for me.
No more, no more,
No more auction block for me.
Many thousands gone.

No more driver's lash for me.
No more, no more,
No more driver's lash for me.
Many thousands gone.

No more peck of corn for me.
No more, no more,
No more peck of corn for me.
Many thousands gone.

Indentured servitude is a form of slavery. The first Old Joe Clark was probably an indentured slave.

George, drudgery and danger in an occupation that is brought about by unscrupulous managers and bosses is a form of slavery. Songs of the sweat shop, the early coal mines, conscripted convict labor used to break picket lines, and the repression of social "agitation", the exploitation of child labor and the cotton mill girls are all under the rubric of slavery in my opinion.

I believe that it's a "high context" issue of which Black slavery is a part.
