Lead Belly - The Blue Tailed Fly (Jimmie Crack Corn) lyrics

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away

Rod-a, he ride him and he jumped a ditch,
He ride-a, he rode him, and the pony did pitch
The pony, he felt a little bit shy,
‘Cause he's bitten by that blue-tailed fly

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away.

When I went down in Louisiana,
I stayed a little while in Texarkana
Every once in a while, I felt a little bit shy
‘Cause I was bitten by that blue-tailed fly

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away

I was on my to Shreveport, Louisiana,
Then I stopped out in Caspiana
And I felt a little bit shy,
‘Cause I was bitten by that blue-tailed fly

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away

When I was drivin' along in my car
I was stoppin' most anywhere
Once in while I look up in the sky
‘Cause I was bitten by that blue-tailed fly

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away

Once in a while I do a little bit o'dance,
And some of the people come around and says, 'Will you allow me a little chance?
But every once in a while I feel a little bit shy
‘Cause I was bitten by that blue-tailed fly

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care.
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away.

Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care.
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
Jimmy, crack corn, and I don't care,
My mastas gone away.
