The Raging Canal (Two in the Middle)

Coffee grows on white oak trees       (tune 1)
Rivers flow with brandy, O,
Go choose someone to go with you
Sweet a 'lasses candy, O.

     There's..
Six in the middle and I can't catch Josie
Six in the middle and I can't get around!
Six in the middle and I can't catch Josie
Hello, Susan Brown!
     Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
     Lost my love on the raging canal.
     Let her go, go, go
     Let her go, go, go
     Let her go for to stay on the raging canal.

     Now she's gone, gone, gone
     Now she's gone, gone, gone
     Now she's gone for to stay in the raging canal.

Four in the middle etc.

Two in the middle, etc.

Fiddle in the middle, etc.

(Repeat first 4 lines)

Note: variation of Raging Canoe, see RAGECANO
     probably some sort of play-party, but I don't know the
     steps. Can anybody out there help?
