Song title: Old Dan Tucker


Old Dan Tucker

Old Dan Tucker was a fine old man,
Washed his face in a fryin’ pan,
Combed his head with a wagon wheel,
Died with a toothache in his heel

Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper

Old Dan Tucker come to town,
Riding a billy goat, leading a hound
The hound dog barked and the billy goat jumped
And landed old Tucker on a stump

Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper

Old Dan Tucker got drunk and fell
in the fire and kicked up holy hell
A red-hot coat got in his shoe
an oh my Lord the ashes flew

Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper

Now Old Dan Tucker come to town
Swinging them ladies all round
First to the right then to the left
Then to the gal that he loved best

Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper

Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
you're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
You're too late to get your supper
