Went up on a mountain
To give my horn a blow
Thought I heard my true love say
Yonder comes my beau!

- Boil them cabbage down, down
- Bake some hoecakes brown, brown
- The only song that I can sing
- Is boil them cabbage down

Someone stole my old coon dog
I wish they'd bring him back
He'd chase the big hogs through the fence
And the little ones through a crack

Possum in a 'simmon tree
Raccoon on the ground
Raccoon said "you son of a gun
Throw some 'simmons down!"

Once I had an old gray mule
His name was Simon Slick
He'd roll his eyes and back his ears
And how that mule could kick

Met a possum in the road
Blind as he could be
Jumped the fence and whipped my dog
And bristled up at me

Butterfly has wings of gold
Firefly wings of flame
Bedbug's got no wings at all
But he gets there just the same
