moongoddess Wild Boar: History, Lyrics & Discussion-Child #18 (105* d) Lyr Add: BANGUM AND THE WILD BOAR 16 Jul 09


I learned "Bangum and the Wild Boar" from Michael and Carrie Kline who learned it from Currence Hammonds and Sherman Hammonn in West Virginia.

BANGUM AND THE WILD BOAR
From Currence Hammonds and Sherman Hammons

There are a wild boar in these woods, dillo di, dillo dey,
There are a wild boar in these woods, dillo di,
There are a wild boar in these woods,
        He'll eat your meat and suck your blood,
Come away, quaddle down, quanzio.

Bangum made him a wooden gun
        to shoot that wild boar as he run.

Then Bangum got him a butcher knife
        he swore to take that wild boar's life.

He tracked that wild boar to his den
        where he found the bones of a thousand men.

He raised his horn up to his mouth
        first he blowed it East, then West and South.

That wild boar come with such a dash
        it splintered hickory, oak and ash.

Then Bangum raised his wooden gun
        and he shot that wild boar as he run.

Then Bangum raised his butcher knife
        right there he took that wild boar's life.
