Boil them Cabbage Down lyrics

Went up on the mountain Just to give my horn a blow Thought I heard my true love say Yonder comes my beau Bile them Cabbage down Turn them hoecakes round The only song that I can sing Is bile them cabbage down Took my gal to the blacksmith shop To have her mouth made small She turned around a time or two And swallowd shop and all * Refrain Possum in a Simmon tree Raccoon on the ground Raccoon says you son-of-a-gun Shake some Simmon's down * Refrain Someone stole my old 'coon dog Wish they'd bring him back He chased the big hogs through the fence And the little ones through the crack * Refrain Met a possum in the road Blind as he could be Jumped the fence and whipped my dog And bristled up at me * Refrain Once I had an old gray mule His name was Simon Slick He'd roll his eyes and back his ears And how that mule would kick * Refrain How that mule would kick He kicked with his dying breath He shoved his hind feet down his throat And kicked himself to death * Refrain
