MY SON JOHNA
Well, I sent my son Johna out one day For to hunt the old gray mare-oo He was gone and he was gone-oo.
Well I got uneasy about my son Johna And I went out for to hunt my son Johna And where do you reckon I found my son Johna Sittin' away down yonder on an old hollow log,
Pickin' on an old goat banjo,
And the tune went so-to-so.
Patty want you drink some,
Patty won't you drink some,
Patty won't you drink some good old cider,
You be the gray horse and I'll be the rider,
Go to Baily Watts' to get some cider.
