Angeline The Baker TML # 000352

Flat footers and cloggers love this song to dance to as it is a very distinctive tune and lends itself well to different tempos. Can be done gently with the claw hammer or raucously with a full bluegrass band and a team of cloggers. Rumour has it that this song was made by a by a black slave who wanted to marry Angeline but she got sold and so he missed his chance.
Angeline, the baker, Angeline, the baker,
Angeline, the baker, I love you Angeline.

Angeline, the baker, she's so long and tall,
she sleeps out in the kitchen with her feet out in the hall.
Angeline the baker, her age is forty three,
She chases boys around the house, but she ain't gonna get me.
