from the Appalachians

Chickens a-crowin' on Sourwood Mountain,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
So many pretty girls I can't count 'em,
Hey ho, diddle-um day.

2. My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
She won't come and I'm too lazy.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.

3. Big dog bark and little one bite you,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
Big girl court and little one spite you.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.

4. My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
If I don't get her, I'll go crazy.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.

5. My true love lives at the head of the holler,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
She won't come and I won't foller.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.

6. My true love lives over the river,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
A few more jumps and I'll be with her.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.

7. Ducks in the pond, geese in the ocean,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
Devil's in the women if they take a notion.
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
