(A fine breakdown with calls. I will try to transcribe
as much as I can of the calls.)
Ah!. and never turn down
them pretty girls round and round.
Now the right, now the wrong,
Take to the back (?) and keep a-hookin' on.
Come on, boys, and don't be late,
These big fat hogs are .
the little red wagon.
Wheels are off, and the axles draggin'.
You can't catch a ride in my little wagon.
Grab your gal and let's go home.
Come on boys, and don't be slow,
Thought I heared old .
and never down,
Help that gal go round and round.
Come on, boys, and don't be slow,
And somebody stepped on my sore toe.
Now go up the creek and down the bend,
Give it a little whirl .
Ah! cute little girl dressed in red,
hit me in the head.
Come on, boys, and let's go round,
Grab your and lets go .
Ah i cuts big and eight,
And you know her and I don't care,
And now you're right and now you're wrong,
keep a-hookin' on.
and let's go home,
Grab your partner and long.
Now you're light and now you're wrong,
Take a chew tobacco to keep a-hookin' on.
