Reel 249, Item 1
Man Named Angeline
There was a man named Angeline,
Who hung two red shirts on the line,
And bought a goat so rich and fine,
And tied it hard in his back yard.
That goat got loose about half-past nine,
And ate those red shirts on the line,
And Angeline got mad and said,
He wished to God that goat was dead.
He took it to the railroad track
And tied it there right flat of its back,
And from the east there came an express;
I'll leave you now to guess the rest.
Sing any old song, but not good-bye
For this ole goat wasn't ready to die;
It had a scheme worked in its brain,
Caoughed up those shirts and flagged the train.
