GROUNDHOG

Ernie Alston
Shafter, 1940

Take my gun and whistle for my dog
Take my gun and whistle for my dog
Thought I'd get me a groundhog -groundhog.

The old dog treed and treed in a log
The old dog treed and treed in a log
One for me and two for my dog -groundhog.

I cut him up and I got him on soon
I cut him up and I got him on soon
He got done before quite noon -groundhog.

Here come the chillun with a laugh and a grin
Here come the chillun with a laugh and a grin
Groundhog gravy all over their chin -groundhog.

Old Uncle Sam kept hangin' roun'
Old Uncle Sam kept hangin' roun'
Thought he'd get my groundhog ham -groundhog.

Old Aunty Jane came skippin' on a chain
Old Aunty Jane came skippin' on a chain
Thought she's get my groundhog brain -groundhog.

Old Aunty Sal came skip and a hop
Old Aunty Sal came skip and a hop
Flounced her head right in that pot -groundhog.

Want my grave dug deep and wide
Want my grave dug deep and wide
Want it lined with groundhog hide -groundhog.

Want my tombstone on it wrote
Want my tombstone on it wrote
Groundhogs runnin' down my throat -groundhog.

I have it on good authority that groundhog tastes NOTHING like haggis.
