    Slave, who was happy when a fly bit Master’s horse and threw him.

    It’s like the line in the Elton John song, “If I was a sculptor, but then again, no”. Sounds like that line shouldn’t have made it past the first edit!

    Well, according to dear ol’ Wiki the best interpretations seem to be that Gimcrack was corn whisky or that the words were originally “gimme cracked corn” which referred to the reduction in food allowance for the slave, but he didn’t care since “The Master” was now dead. Great story-telling song anyway!

    Probably not taught in todays politically correct environment but . . . the song is a black slave’s lament over his master’s death. Because where was he going to go; what was he going to do if he had no master. sad commentary on a even sadder period of our history.

    I like the Smothers Brothers’ version of that song.

    It was definitely a slave song but I thought it was about a trip not death. I remember being taught that song in school when I was little.
