There are many theories but I have heard that a "Black Betty" was a flint-lock musket with a black painted stock. In the song "bam-ba-lam" refers to the sound of the gunfire. And her child is kills she made. But Black Betty is an old African American slave song so who really knows. Other Theories Black Betty is a Black Chick... Black Betty is a VD... Black Betty is the stocks that misbehaving slaves where taken to be shot at.
