Words and Music by Barney Fagan.

Daylight's a-breakin', hear the rooster crowin',
Wake up everybody, see the sun rise;
Mornin' larks a-singin', dewdrops a-fallin';
Clouds am a-gitin' mighty scarce in de skies;
Buzzards fly together In stormy weather;
Cream am a-sourin' when it begins to turn;
Ducks quack, quackin' when the rain am a-pourln';
Pigs all a-rootin' while the dairy -maids churn.

Daylight's a-breakin', hear the rooster crowin'.
Wake up everybody, see the sun rise:
Mornin' larks a-singin', dewdrops a-fallin';
Clouds am a-gittin' mighty scarce in the skiea.

Honey-bee hummin' when the Winter's comin" ;
Lean horse hobbles, interfering with his shins;
Big bull-frog am noisy, growlin' In thicket:
Colored man suffer mighty hard for his sins;
Possom keep a-climbin' whar de simmon grow;
If you want to catch a rabbit, don't be too slow;
Cricket chirp louder When the day am speut;
Nigger dreamin' policy and never gets a cent.-Chorus.

Tom-cat a-hidin' while the old hen's hatchin';
Smack at my lips a when de hoe-cake's hot;
Sparrer-hawk a-peepin' while de chicken's scratchin';
Gravy am a-waitin' for the 'taters in the pot;
Mule fine as silk when you feed him on clover;
Chip-monk am happy, just a-hoppin' in de tree;
Owl am wide-awake when daylight's over;
Hog starts a-runnin' When de jackass sneeze.-Chorus.
