Old Dan Tucker

I come to town de udder night,
I hear de noise, den saw de fight,
De watchman was a runnin' 'roun',
Cryin' " Old Dan Tucker's come to town. "

Chorus
So, git out de way, old Dan Tucker,
Git out de way, old Dan Tucker, Git out de way, old Dan Tucker,
You're too late to come to supper.

Old Daniel Tucker was a mighty man,
He washed his face in a frying pan,
Combed his head wid a wagon wheel,
An' died wid de toothache in his heel.
CHORUS : So, git out, etc.

3

Old Dan Tucker he got drunk,
He fell in de fire an' he kicked up a chunk;
De red hot coals got in his shoe
An' whee - ee! how de ashes flew!
CHORUS : So, git out, etc.

4

Old Dan Tucker's mother-in-law,
Was the ugliest thing I ever saw,
Her eyes stuck out an' her nose stuck in,
Her upper lip hung over her chin.

CHORUS : So, git out, etc.

5

Old Dan Tucker's back in town,
Swingin' the ladies all aroun';
First to the right and then to the left,
An' then to the gal that he loves best.
CHORUS : So, git out, etc.

6

I went to meetin' de udder day,
To hear old Tucker preach an' pray,
Dey all got drunk, but me alone,
I make ole Tucker walk-jaw-bone.
CHORUS : So, git out, etc.

7

Tucker is a nice old man,
He us'd to ride our darby ram,
He sent him whizzin' down de hill,
If he hadn't got up, he'd laid dar still.
