American Ballads and Folk Songs
Old Daniel Tucker wuz a mighty man, He washed his face in a fryin' panj Combed his head wid a wagon wheel And died wid de toofache in his heel.
And now Old Dan is a gone sucker, And never can go home to supper. Old Dan has had his las' ride, An' de banjo's buried by his side,
COTTON-EYED TOE*
IŁ it had not V been for Cotton-Eyed Joe, I'd 'a' been married forty years ago.
% Cornstalk fiddle and cornstalk bow
Gwine to beat hell out-a Cotton-Eyed Joe.
Gwine to go shootin' my forty-fo', Won't be a nigger in a mile or mo'.
