The Play-Party in Indinna.
Old Dan Tucker.
a.
1.    Old Dan Tucker's still in town,
2.    Swinging the ladies all around,
First to the East 3 and then to the West, 4. Then to the one that you love best.
Chorus :-
5.    Get out of the way of Old Dan Tucker! He's too late to get his supper. Supper's over and breakfast's cooking,
6.    Old Dan Tucker's stands a-looking.
Old Dan Tucker's a fine old man, Washed his feet (or face) in tke frying pan, Combed his hair with a wagon wheel, And died with a tooth-ache in his heel.
Mrs. Leslie Beall, Versailles, Ind
1. Get out o' the way for Old Dan Tucker, He's too late to get his supper. Some are black and some are blacker, Some are the color of a chew a' terbacker.
Ripley County variants.
:Swing three ladies, Old Dan Tucker,: 3 times Down in the valley.
:Promenade round Old Dan Tucker: 3 times Down in the valley
