No. 114
Sourwood Mountain
2   Raccoon canter and 'possum trot, Black cur wrestle with a hickory knot.
3   Bring your old dog, get your gun, Kill some game and have a little fun.
4   Jaybird sitting on a hickory limb, My six-foot rifle will sure get him.
5   Gather that game and at home I'll rack, Got as much good meat as I can carry.
6   I got a gal in the head of the hollow, She won't come and I won't follow.
7   She sits up with old Si Hall,
Me and Jeff can't go there at all.
8   Some of these days before very long, I'll get that girl and a-home I'll run.
