www.youtube.c0m/LDsongscreen

Bile Em Cabbage Down is a minstrel song from the 1850's. The verses float from song to song and can be found in Shady Grove, Whoa Mule, and Lynchburg Town, among others. The "hoe cakes" described in the song were a favorite in the South before the American Civil War. Slaves apparently cooked hoe cakes on their hoes over an open fire. Confederate soldiers reportedly roasted them on bayonets.
