[Intro]

C G C 

[Verse 1]
C
As I was a-gwine down the road
                        G     C                
With a tired team and a heavy load
C
I crack'd my whip and the leader sprung
                      G     C
I says day-day to the wagon tongue

[Refrain]
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

[Verse 2]
C
Went out to milk and I didn't know how
                     G           C
I milked the goat instead of the cow
C
A monkey sittin' on a pile of straw
                 G         C                
A-winkin' at his mother-in-law

[Refrain]
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

[Verse 3]
C
Met Mr. Catfish comin' down stream
                  G             C
Says Mr. Catfish "What does you mean?"
C
Caught Mr. Catfish by the snout
                       G          C
And turned Mr. Catfish wrong side out

[Refrain]
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

[Verse 4]
C
Came to a river and I couldn't get across
                       G          C
Paid five dollars for a blind old hoss
C
Wouldn't go ahead nor he wouldn't stand still
                               G       C
So he went up and down like an old saw mill

[Refrain]
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

[Verse 5]
C
As I came down the new cut road
                 G        C
Met Mr. Bullfrog met Miss Toad
C
And every time Miss Toad would sing
                   G      C
Old Bullfrog cut a pigeon wing

[Refrain]
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw

[Verse 6]
C
Oh I jumped in the seat and I gave a little yell
                              G            C
The horses ran away broke the wagon all to hell
C
Sugar in the gourd and honey in the horn
                                G         C
I never been so happy since the day I was born

[Refrain] 
C                   F
Turkey in the straw turkey in the hay
C
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw
                               G             C
And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw
