386. I've Been 'Buked

1 I’ve been ’buked an’ I’ve been scorned,
I’ve been ’buked an’ I’ve been scorned, children;
I’ve been ’buked an’ I’ve been scorned,
I’ve been talked about sho’s you’ born.

2 Dere is trouble all over dis worl’,
Dere is trouble all over dis worl’, children;
Dere is trouble all over dis worl’,
Dere is trouble all over dis worl’.

3 Ain’ gwine lay my ’ligion down,
Ain’ gwine lay my ’ligion down, children;
Ain’ gwine lay my ’ligion down,
Ain’ gwine lay my ’ligion down.
