A Frog He Went A-courting
Hexatonic. Mode 3, b.
Sung by Mrs. Tom Rice at Big Laurel, N. C, Aug. 16, 1916
2   The first come in was a bumble bee With his banjo on his knee.
3   The next come in was a nimble flea To take a jig with the bumble bee.
4   The next come in was a kitten and a cat, And the next come was the old man rat.
5   The lady mouse she tore up the wall, Her foot it slipped and she did fall.
6   The frog he went to town
To buy a little niece's wedding gown.
7   The frog he went across the brook,
The black snake swallowed him down his crook.
