Note: Alternating solo voice. Alan Lomax notes: “This song … tells a story of a young lady who wants to go shopping for a nose decoration. Her husband says, ‘I am working for only 25 cents. Where am I going to get money to give to you?’ She is annoyed and wishes that rain could fall and flood the house” (Field Log).
