I'm looking for a song recorded many years ago by Grandpa Jones called "I Don't Know Gee From Haw". Any words and/or tune would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Andy

Sorry don't know the tune but. . . When working with a pulling horse Gee is hollered when you want the horse to pull right. Haw is hollered when you want the horse to pull left.
there are a number of folks around here that still keep and use (mostly for tourists, parades, festival etc.) buckboards and wagons pulled by horses. And a few (very few) that still plow and work fields with horses.
There is even a need for drivers. People who know how to harness the animals and care for them as well as drive them. There aren't a whole lot of us left.

****

I DON'T KNOW GEE FROM HAW
Grandpa Jones

If they put me in the jail
I wouldn't know how to go my bail
have to get a lawyer to figure out the law
'cause I don't know gee from haw

CH
I don't know gee from haw
I wish I had some knowledge
It aint no fun being dumb
I wish I'd gone to college

I believe my sweetie's cheating on me
tried every way to find out you see
I talked to her ma, talked to her pa
but I don't know gee from haw

CH

Married a little gal and I got a divorce
married her ma and it made things worse
I think I'll marry her old grandma
'cause I don't know gee from haw

CH

I'd spin a rope but I don't know how
work on a farm but I can't milk a cow
try to saw a log with an old hacksaw
but I don't know gee from haw

CH

That's why people impose on me
'cause I'm so doggone dumb you see
should have taken a lesson or two
so I could learn just what to do

CH
..it aint no fun being dumb, I wish I'd stayed in college
