Learn the basic melody and words to this classic tune in the higher octave! Pay close attention to the fingering in the tab. Measures 4 and 6 require a shift to 3rd position. Make that shift when you play an open string before and at the end of the measure. If some of those sixteenth notes are giving you trouble use the tempo slider or difficulty slider to adjust the tunes to your needs. Get comfortable with that and then add in some tasty licks!Learn

Crawdad Song - Key of C lyrics
You get a line and I’ll get a pole honey You get a line and I’ll get a pole babe You get a line and I’ll get a pole And we’ll go down to the Crawdad hole Honey sugar baby mine. Get up old man you slept too late honey Get up old man you slept too late babe Get up old man you slept too late Last piece of crawdad’s on your plate Honey sugar baby mine. Get up old woman you slept too late honey Get up old woman you slept too late babe Get up old woman you slept too late Crawdad man done passed your gate Honey sugar baby mine. Along come a man with a sack on his back honey Along come a man with a sack on his back babe Along come a man with a sack on his back Packin’ all the crawdads he can pack Honey sugar baby mine. What you gonna do when the crawdads die honey What you gonna do when the crawdads die baby What you gonna do when the crawdads die Sit on the bank until I cry Honey sugar baby mine. I heard the duck say to the drake honey I heard the duck say to the drake baby I heard the duck say to the drake There ain’t no crawdads in this lake Honey sugar baby mine.
