GUEST,Robert Lyr Req; Flatwoods (Gid Tanner's Skillet Lickers) (3) Flatwoods - Dance call - Skillet Lickers 14 Mar 11


Okay, here's some interesting lyrics that
I'm not really sure of. It is what Clayton
McMichen is shouting in the Skillet Licker
tune 'Flatwoods'. Below is a audio clip for'
those who haven't heard it before and my guesses:

Guesswork on Flatwoods

Lay around the ladies and the gents don't go
Lay around the gin and the gents don't go
Ladies in the center and the gents catch air
Hold her, Newt, don't let her rare!


Chicken in a bread-tray scratchin' out dough
Granny, will your dog bite No, child, no!
Ladies in the center and the gents catch air
Hold her, Newt, don't let her rare!


Swing Ma, Swing Pa, Swing that gal from Arkansas
Take a Chew Tobaccer and promenade all
Pull that Calico from the wall!


Swing Ma, Swing Pa, Swing that gal from Arkansas
Rope that gown, Chope that gas
Swing your partner 'round and a half!


Lay around the ladies and the gents don't go
Lay around the gin and the gents don't go
Swing your partner 'round and a half
Chope that gown down and a half!
