Hot Corn, Cold Corn lyrics

Hot corn, cold corn, bring along a demijohn
Hot corn, cold corn, bring along a demijohn
Hot corn, cold corn, bring along a demijohn
Fare thee well, Uncle Bill, see you in the morning, Yes sir

Upstairs, downstairs, down in the Kitchen
Upstairs, downstairs, down in the Kitchen
Upstairs, downstairs, down in the Kitchen
See Uncle Bill, see you fill 'em up again, Yes sir

* Refrain

Old Aunt Peggy won't you fill 'em up again
Old Aunt Peggy won't you fill 'em up again
Old Aunt Peggy won't you fill 'em up again
Ain't had a drink since I don't know when, Yes sir

* Refrain

Yonder comes the preacher and the children are a-crying
Yonder comes the preacher and the children are a-crying
Yonder comes the preacher and the children are a-crying
Chickens are a-hollering, toenails a-flying, Yes sir

* Refrain
