Bile Them Cabbage Down

Traditional American Folk Song

"Boil Them Cabbage Down" (also "Bile 'Em Cabbage Down") is an American folk song. Hoecakes are small cornmeal cakes that were baked over a fire on the blade of a hoe. A breakfast of hoecakes and cabbage soup testifies to the humble origins of this song. According to Alan Lomax, musicologist and folklorist formerly of the Library of Congress, this tune was originally associated with African slaves brought from Niger.[citation needed] Notable versions of the song have been played by such artists as Pete Seeger, Ruby Jane Smith and the Smothers Brothers. Sam Hinton sings the song in the album How the West Was Won
