American Ballads and Folk Songs
THE CONNECTICUT PEDDLER*
1
I'm a peddler, I'm a peddler, I'm a peddler from Connecticut, I'm a peddler, I'm a peddler, And don't you want to buy?
2
Many goods have I in store,
So listen while I name them o'er,
So many goods you never saw before,
So very many goods you never saw before,
So listen while I name them o'er,
3
Here are pins, Papers and needles and pins, Tracts upon popular sins, Any of which I will sell you.
4
And here are the seeds of asparagus,
Lettuce, beets, onions, and peppergrass
From the Limited Sodety,
Seeds of all kinds and variety,
Da, da, da, tiddle-dum, tiddle-dum,
Rum, turn tiddle-dum, tiddle-dee,
Rinktum, te-tiddle-dee, rinktum te-tiddle-dee, {Repeat)
Tiddle-dum, tiddle-dum, faddle whee.
*The music, words, and notes for this song were sent by Shirley Lomax Mansell and Bess Brown Loznax.
