Bile them cabbage down

Went up on the mountain
Just to give my horn a blow
Thought I heard my true love say
Yonder comes my beau

    Bile them Cabbage down
    Turn them hoecakes round
    The only song that I can sing
    Is bile them cabbage down

Took my gal to the blacksmith shop
To have her mouth made small
She turned around a time or two
And swallowd shop and all

  * Refrain

Possum in a Simmon tree
Raccoon on the ground
Raccoon says you son-of-a-gun
Shake some Simmon's down

  * Refrain

Someone stole my old 'coon dog
Wish they'd bring him back
He chased the big hogs through the fence
And the little ones through the crack

  * Refrain

Met a possum in the road
Blind as he could be
Jumped the fence and whipped my dog
And bristled up at me

  * Refrain

Once I had an old gray mule
His name was Simon Slick
He'd roll his eyes and back his ears
And how that mule would kick

  * Refrain

How that mule would kick
He kicked with his dying breath
He shoved his hind feet down his throat
And kicked himself to death

  * Refrain
