Helen Help! Mystery: A Different Uncle Eph (24) RE: Help! Mystery: A Different Uncle Eph 05 Jun 21

Hi Hanrod,

I just did a bit of Google searching and found a page about hunting raccoons

Uncle Eph

which had a reference to a different song:

Old Uncle Eph

That page shows the sheet music and you can click on the pages to see a larger version and zoom in to see the lyrics.

It starts:

"Oh I'm getting old and sore and I cannot work no more,
And I'll tell of the days that have gone by,
And when you hear me through then you find it is no go
For to beat this [N-word] playing possum in the rye..."

I can't see any reference to bacon and beans, but it might be worth having a look at it.

The first page states that the music is by Bob Allen, but it is a different song to the raccoon one.
