Well, I think I found a recording of the song here (click), but I'm not familiar with it. At least that's a start, I guess.

Me and brother Bill went hunting
Up in the woods of eastern Maine
The reason why we went up there
Was to catch some game

Brother bill and I went hunting
One dark and stormy night
I shot at something I thought was a bear
But the dog-gone thing turned white

Oh I dropped my gun and away I run
Brother Bill said boy what's the matter with you
Had he knowed like me he'd a run some too
I ran so hard they say
They couldn't catch me all day

The way I ran across that field
They couldn't catch me with an automobile

This is how my grandfather taught it to me. I've been looking for the complete lyrics for a while. If anybody's knows please let me know.

Me and Brother Bill went a-huntin'
Way up in the woods of northern Maine.
The reason why we went up there,
Cause we hoped to catch some game

Me and Brother Bill went a-huntin'
Way up in the middle of the night
We shot a something like a grizzly bear
And the gosh darn thing turned white

Well I dropped my gun and away I run
Brother Bill said what's the matter with you
But had he knowed what I seen
He'd a run some too

I ran so fast and I ran so far
They say they couldn't catch me all day
Well I run so hard across field
They say they couldn't catch me with an automobile

I run 'till I was exhausted
And my feet were draggin' on the ground
But I says to me feet don't you fail me now
'Cause we're Alabami bound.

My dad had it.....

Me and brother Bill went hunting Up in the state of Maine The reason why, we went up there We thought we could get some game

That night while we were hunting Way in the middle of the night I saw something looked like a grizzly bear Then the dog gone thing turned white

Oh, I dropped my gun and away I run Brother Bill said "Boy, what's the matter with you?" If you knew like me you'd run some too

I ran so fast they say You couldn't catch me all day I ran so fast across the field You couldn't catch me with an automobile

ME AND BROTHER BILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
