Subject: Lyr Add: BANGUM AND THE WILD BOAR
I learned "Bangum and the Wild Boar" from Michael and Carrie Kline who learned it from Currence Hammonds and Sherman Hammonn in West Virginia.
BANGUM AND THE WILD BOAR
From Currence Hammonds and Sherman Hammons
There are a wild boar in these woods, dillo di, dillo dey,
There are a wild boar in these woods, dillo di,
There are a wild boar in these woods,
He'll eat your meat and suck your blood,
Come away, quaddle down, quanzio.
Bangum made him a wooden gun
to shoot that wild boar as he run.
Then Bangum got him a butcher knife
he swore to take that wild boar's life.
He tracked that wild boar to his den
where he found the bones of a thousand men.
He raised his horn up to his mouth
first he blowed it East, then West and South.
That wild boar come with such a dash
it splintered hickory, oak and ash.
Then Bangum raised his wooden gun
and he shot that wild boar as he run.
Then Bangum raised his butcher knife
right there he took that wild boar's life.
