The Old Grey Mare
B
Hexatonic. Mode I, b.
Sung by Mr. Jeff Stockton at Flag Pond, Tenn., Sept. 4, 1916
2   O then I turned her down the creek; Proposed her to get her some grass to eat.
3   O then, O then I took her track,
And found her in a mud-hole flat on her back.
4   O then, O then I thought it no sin ;
I took out my knife and began to skin.
5   O then I put her hide in the loft,
And some blamed rogue came packed it off.
6   O some blamed rogue come packed it off, And left my clothes to take the frost.
