Doc Watson At Gerdes Folk City; Cut 5

(guitar inst.)

Way down yonder and not far off,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.
A jaybird died with the whoppin' cough,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

CHORUS 1: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Ram tom a-doodle-snake a-rank tank a rattle bug,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

Way down yonder on Beaver Creek,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.
The gals all grow to be six feet,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.

CHORUS 1: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Ram tom a-doodle-snake a-rank tank a rattle bug,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.

(guitar inst.)

My cow won't give the milk in the summer,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.
So we've got to take it from 'er,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.

CHORUS 2: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Rip tap a-pitty pat, a blue-eyed pussycat,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

(guitar inst.)

Mama's in the garden siftin' sand,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.
Sally's in love with the hog-eye man,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.

CHORUS 2: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Rip tap a-pitty pat, a blue-eyed pussycat,
Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o.

Cabbage in the garden, bees in the gum.
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.
Sally won't you come and smooch me some
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

CHORUS 2: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Rip tap a-pitty pat, a blue-eyed pussycat,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

(faster) CHORUS 2: Hemo hymo, beetle-bug jingo,
Meehee, myho, pretty penny winko,
Rip tap a-pitty pat, a blue-eyed pussycat,
Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o.

Note: Doc sings two different choruses and sings, "Sing song kitty can't ya kime-e-o" and sometimes "Sing song kitty can ya kime-e-o" instead.
