Sourwood Mountain lyrics

Chickens a'crowin' on Sourwood Mountain Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day So many pretty girls I can't count 'em Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day My true love's a sun-burnt daisy Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day If I don't get her I'll go crazy Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day My true love's at the head of the holler Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day She won't come and I won't foller Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day Big dog'll bark and little one'll bite you Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day Big girl will court and the little one spite you Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day Chickens a'crowin' on Sourwood Mountain Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day So many pretty girls I can't count 'em Hey Ho Diddle-aye-day
