I whittled out a fiddle from a wagon seat.

I tune my fiddle and I rub my bow..

play a little tune wherever I go.

Sleepy-eyed John, you better get you're britches on.

Sleepy-eyed John better tie your shoe.

Well, Sleepy-eyed John he had a wooden leg.
                                 C
The little leg was nothing but a little wooden peg.
     F
With one shoe off and one shoe on..he could do the

double-shuffle til the cows come home.

Now, I took 20 dollars for to build a fence.
                      C
I took my money and I ain't worked since.
  F
I sold my buggy and I sold my plow.

I wouldn't take a dollar for my journey now.

Over the hickory and down the pine..
                        C

John said, 'Sick 'em', and the racoon left.

They crossed Green River in a minute and a half.
