Note: Bill Broonzy talks to Alan about Blacks in the South feeling jealous towards the more privileged, and doing the bidding of whites instead of looking out for one another. He tells a story about a white man who wants a black man's wife, and offers another black man a piece of land to kill the first. Bill quotes a farm boss who would say to the black laborers that "if you keep yourself out of the graveyard, I'll keep you out of jail."
