American Ballads and Folk Songs
Huntin' for de grey goose, etc.,
An' he wen' to de big wood,
An' he took along his zulu,
An' de houn' dog he wen' too.
Houn' dog 'gin to whinin',
Long come a grey goose,
Well, up to his shoulder,
An' ram back de hammer,
An' pull on de trigger,
And de gun wen' boo-loo,
Down he come a-fallin',
He was six weeks a-fallin',
An' he put him on de waggin,
An' he taken him to de white house.
Oh, yo' wife an' my wife,
They'll give a feather pickin';
He was six weeks a-pickin',
An' dey put him on a-cookin'j
He was six weeks a-cookin',
An' dey put him on de table,
An' de fork couldn' stick him.
Well, dey throwed him in de hog-pen,
An' de hogs couldn' eat him,
Well, he broke de ol' sow's jawbone,
So dey taken him to de sawmill,
An' he broke de saws' teeth out,
An' de las' time I seed her,
She was flyin' 'cross de ocean,
Had a long string o' goslin's,
An' dey all went "Quonk, quonk,"
Lawd, Lawd, Lawd,
An' dey all went "Quonk, quonk,"
Lawd, Lawd, Lawd.
