Need help!

Does anyone know where I can find a poem that we think is named \"Nebuchadnezzar\". My husband remembers hearing it at least 50 years ago. The most he remembers is that it goes something like this:
You, Nebuchadnezzar, whoa sir
Where you tryin to go sir?
I\'ll hab you for to know sir
I\'m a holdin ob de reins.

Any help with author or the complete poem will be appreciated.
Thanks.

I\'m not sure if I\'m correct on this one but I have an English Literature book with a portrait of Nebchadezzar, painted by William Blake. I hope this helps you out.

Navid,
I believe that Nebuchadnezzar that the poem refers to is a Mule. Is that what the portrait is? Nancy
