Cisco Houston - Old Dan Tucker lyrics
I went to town the other night
To hear a noise and see a fight.
All the folks was runnin' around,
Said, "Old Dan Tucker's comin' to town."
Hey! Git out of the way for Ol' Dan Tucker!
Too late to git his supper.
Supper is over and dinner's cookin',
And Old Dan Tucker just standin' there lookin'.
Well, Old Dan Tucker he come to town;
He was ridin' a billy goat, leading a hound.
Well, the hound dog barked and the billy goat jumped,
And they throwed Dan Tucker right a-straddle of a stump.
Well, Old Dan Tucker, he come home drunk,
He jumped in the fire and he kicked out a chunk.
He got a live coal down in his shoe--
And Holy Gosh 'mighty! How the ashes flew!
Old Dan Tucker was fine old man,
He washed his face in a frying pan,
He combed his hair with a wagon wheel,
And died with a toothache in his heel.
