Subject: Lyr Req: That old bear he was loaded for me
From: GUEST,
Date: 05 Jun 05 - 01:29 AM

I am looking for the lyrics for a song called LOADED FOR BEAR (not the Ted Nugent one). My grandfather use to play it in C. I remember the beginning went "When I was a lad about 14 I had a coon dog her name was Queen". Other lyrics I rember are "Me and ole Queen we were loaded for bear" and "that ole bear he was a loaded for me". Thank you for any help or other sites I might be able to resource.

Besides the Ted Nugent song, The BMI Repertoire lists two other songs called LOADED FOR BEAR. One is by Charles R. Ramey and the other is by Johnny Bond.

The Johnny Bond song was issued as Columbia 4-21494 (with SIX OF ONE, HALF A DOZEN OF THE OTHER), according to this discography.

I couldn't find any more information about the Ramey song.

Huntin' for Coon but I'm loaded for Bear

When I was a boy, just turned 14
I had an old Coonhound, by the name of Queen
When we went a huntin', we made quite a pair
We were huntin' for coon, but we were loaded for bear

Up on hill and down the other
carrying 9 raccoons and their Pa & Mother
If we came home empty handed, that was rare
For me and Old Queen, we were loaded for bear

One day me and Old Queen, we treed us a coon
That tree was so tall it nearly scraped on the moon
I threw down my gun and I said "Ill swear
I'm a climbing for coon, but I'm loaded for bear"

I climb about a mile up that dab blame tree
but nothing yet, was I able to see
I heard a commotion down on the ground
Old Queen had let out, that she was a' homeward bound

Now Queen ain't no quitter, she's a first class pooch
but that dog took off, like she'd been shot full of hooch
And I glanced straight down and loss and mercy me
There's a big black bear, and he's a' loaded for me

Here I am, half way to the top
hanging on tight, trying hard not to drop
I said, "Lord, I ain't much, but if you've got a notion of answering this prayer
you best come quick, and loaded for bear"

The lyrics are from
