OLE BULL AND OLE DAN TUCKER
Ole Bull and Tucker met one day,
Five hundred dollars for to play,
De women ran an de men too,
To hear dem fiddle up something new. Loud de banjo talked away, An beat Ole Bull from de Norway, We'll take de shine from Paginini, We're de boys from ole Virgmny
Ole Bull he made his elbow quiver, He played a shake and den a shiver ; But when Dan Tucker touched his string, He'd make him shake like a locust's wing.
Loud de banjo, &c
Now ole Bull he sweat an tug, An his eye shine like de lightnin bug. # Den played till his eye stuck out quite hot, Like a duinplin in an ole black pot.
Loud de banjo, &c.
Bull put some rosin on his bow,
An' put a little inside too,
Dan soaked his wrist wid possum taller,
An his music made de sky turn yaller.
Loud de banjo, &c.
Dey stop awhile to blow an rest, Ve people thought that both was best, hut when Dan Tucker played dis tune, Tou'd thought each eve dar was a full moon.
Loud de bajo, &c
