Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=110 Medium 1/4=160 Fast 1/4=220

A easy to play fun childrens song often played as an instrunmental. Fiddle tune with words, often of the form, "Old Molly Hare, What('r) you doin' there?" followed by a reply, e.g. "Sitting in the briarpatch, combing out my hair."
Old Molly Hare, what you doin' there,
Running down the road just as fast as I can tear.
Run down one run down two,
Run down one and give it to you.

Step back, step back, daddy shot a bear,
Shot him in the eye and never touched a hair.
Old Molly Hare, what you doin' there,
Sitting on a hillside eating on a bear ?

Jump up, jump up yonder comes bear,
Coming down the hillside as hard as he can tear.
Look back, look back, daddy shot a bear,
Shot him in the eye and never touched a hair.
Old Molly Hare, if you don't care,
Leave my liquor jug sitting right there.
Old Molly Hair, she took a spell,
Kicked my liquor jug all to ----

Step back, step back, daddy shot a bear,
Shot him in the eye and never touched a hair.
Old Molly Hare, what you doin' there,
Running through the briar patch as hard as you can tear.

I'd rather be here than back there,
Big ball of cuckleberries tangled in my hair,
Step back, step back, daddy shot a bear,
Shot him in the eye and never touched a hair.
