One possibility is “inferior corn,” cheap corn whiskey, another theory is that to you “crack” it open a jug of corn whiskey finds another is that “cracking corn” is related to the (still-current) slang “cracker” for a rural white South. [8] Another interpretation is that “crack corn” from the old English term “crack”, which means gossip was, and that “cracking corn” was a traditional Shenandoah expression for “sitting around chitchatting.” [9] Another, perhaps the most popular is that the chorus refers to an overseer who, without the captain has to keep only his whip the slaves in line. Most linguists support the first interpretation, as the term “cracker” appears “corncracking” and precede “Whipcrack” has no historical support. [10] This suggests that the choir does the slave of whiskey and make feiern.Pete Seeger himself said, to explain the true lyric was “Gimmie cracked corn – I do not care”, [11] a reference to a form of punishment for something bad very, in which a slave to the rations were reduced cracked corn and nothing else. In this case it seems the author decided that this punishment is worth it, because the master is now dead and gegangen.Jim crack corn or cracked corn-Get “, a subsistence food (corn) ration. The slave in the song is so happy his master dead, he does not care if he’s eating cracked corn, either because he no one, now give him or he fears he received for the rental of the blue-tailed fly-by will be punished him the causes his masters Untergang.Eine different interpretation states that “Jimmy” was slang for a crow and the crow’s sentence refers to his food allowed in the crop fields. Normally it would be a boy’s responsibility to keep his crows from the corn. The term “Jim Crow” can come from the same bet – a Jimmy could be a crow
