American Ballads and Folk Songs
Whisky by the barrel, Sugar by the pound, A great big bowl to put it in, And a spoon to stir it round.
I wish I had a needle and a thread
As fine as I could sew,
I would sew all the girls to my coat-tail,
And down the mountain I'd go.
Old corn likker's done made, Still's tore out an' gone. What will pore little Liza do, When Pm took off an* gone?
Don't you weep, my darling, Don't you weep nor cryj I'll be back to see you In the long old by-and-by.
You can climb the cherry tree, And I will climb the rose; How I love that pretty little gal, God 'lmighty knows.
Another square-dance tune. The fiddler and the guitar player sing two lines and then play irregular intervals between couplets.
