The Ground Hog
Obtained from Mrs. Mary Tucker, Varnell, Georgia, September, 1931.
i. In come daddy from the plow; I want some dinner; I want it now. Ground hog.
2.  There lays a crust upon the shelf;
If you get any more, you will get it yourself. Ground hog.
3. He picked up his gun and whistled to his dog; Away to the wild woods to catch a ground hog. Ground hug.
4. Daddy returned in a hour and a half
With a great big ground hog as big as a calf. Ground hog.
5. He out with his knife and he begin;
In a very few minutes he had it skinned. Ground hog.
6.  In come Sal and she replied, I love ground hog till I died. Ground hog.
7. Old Kate was the mother of them all;
She fed them on ground hog before they could crawl. Ground hog.
8.  In come Sal with a snigger and a grin With ground hog gravy all over her chin. Ground hog.
9.  In come grandma hopping on a cane; I'm a-gonna have that ground hog brains. Ground hog.
10. Ground hog stewed and ground hog fried; It is the best old ground hog ever I tried. Ground hog.
