American Ballads and Folk Songs
I would not go to old Joe's house, Tell you the reason why: I can't get around his garden spot, For tearing down all his rye.
Chorus:
Round and round all, old Joe Clark, Round and round, I say, He'll foller me ten thousand miles, To hear my fiddle play.
Old Joe's got an old red cow, I know her by the bell. If she ever gits in my cornfield, I'll shoot her shore as Hell.
Chorus:
Round and round all, old Joe Clark, Round and round, I say, Round and round, old Joe Clark, I ain't got long to stay.
I went up to old Joe's house, Old Joe wasn't at home; I eat up all oŁ his ham meat And throwed away the bone.
Chorus:
Fare you well, old Joe Clark, Good-by, Betty Brown, Fare you well, old Joe Clark, Fare you well, I'm gone.
I went down to old Joe Clark's/ Old Joe wasn't at homej
