I'm betting it's trad.

GROUNDHOG

Groundhog, groundhog
What makes your back so brown?
I've been living in the ground for so darn long,
It's a wonder I don't drown, drown.
It's a wonder I don't drown.

Red bird, red bird
What makes your head so red?
I've been picking your corn for so darn long,
It's a wonder I ain't dead, dead.
It's a wonder I ain't dead.

Rattlesnake, rattlesnake
What makes your teeth so white?
I been lyin' in the sun for so darn long,
You're lucky I don't bite, bite.
You're lucky I don't bite.

Muskrat, muskrat
What makes you smell so bad?
I've been living in the ground for so darn long,
I'm mortified in my head, head.
I'm mortified in my head.
