Reel 223, Item 1
Mary Celestia Parler;
The best old fiddle and the best old bow,
The best old fiddle in the country-o,
My old fiddle is made of wood
And best old fiddle in the neighborhood;
Your old fiddle is made of pine,
The best old fiddle, excepting mine.
I'd been married six or seven years ago
If it hadn't a been for old Cotton-eyed Joe,
I wanted to go to meeting and they wouldn't let me go,
I had to stay at home with Cotton-eyed Joe.
Tune up the fiddle and resin up the bow
And knock the darnation out a Cotton-eyed Joe,
Home-made ????? and a puncheon floor,
And spend my money and I work for more.
