dont go down to the quarry.
Don't go down to the quarry in the middle of the night
You'll never come back, you'll never be right
We lost Maggie there just last spring
And Big Ben Johnson, he couldn't do a thing

Big Ben Johnson made a bet with Mad Man Mike
That he could cross the quarry in the middle of the night
He got there, 'bout halfway across
When he started sinking down in the red clay moss.

Nearby standin' on the tracks where the trains used to come
Was Mad Man Mike, beatin' on his drum
Laughin' out loud, eyes rollin' in his head
Standin' on the tracks in the Lucifer's stead

With a long red cape and fire in his eyes
He lifted up his hands to the midnight skies
And the thunder start to roll and the lightenin' flashed wild
And Big Ben Johnson start a cryin' like a child.

Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Down, down, down, down

Then the earth gave a shudder, the quarry start to split
Screamin' down went Johnson into the fiery pit
With a laugh that shivered the center of the bone
Mad Man Mike just standin' there alone

He's callin' all the people, to take their turn
And fall into the pit and eternally burn
Down, down, don't go down
Down, down, down, down

Lucifer's caught on the railraod track
He's howlin' at the moon 'cause he can't come back
And in the evenin' while we're sittin' there in front of the fire
We laugh at old Lucifer before we retire

Don't go down to the quarry in the middle of the night
You'll never come back, you'll never be right
We lost Maggie there just last spring
And Big Ben Johnson, he couldn't do a thing

Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Don't go down to the quarry, don't, don't go down
Down, down, down, down

Steal sixteen of the King's fat dear.
Sell same in Bohenny
Listen to your mother's advice and marry the Brown Girl
Ignore your mother's advice, plus omens and porents, and go off to see your ain true Maggie, after being warned about deep holes in Clyde's water.
Try and cross the Clyde when the water's too rough.
Challenge Johnny Morrissey to a boxing match. Not if you're a Russian sailor at any rate.
Leave your cabin boy to drown when hje's got an auger in his hand and her's just sunk the Turkish revelry.
Try to prove you're better than the steam drill.
Refuse to tell the fause Argyle where your dowry's hidden. He'll find it anyway

Get a donkey. (Because it will constantly want water, get at someone's daughter, do no work, and break the bords of its stall.)

Let anyone named Matilda near your pillowcase.

Marry a pretty woman if you want to be happy and live a king's life

Be named Melda and bite man's finger (this is mento- but, let me go Melda Marcy, you biting my finger).

Don't know if I missed this while scanning the previous posts, but...

Never bet seventeen when you play against the dealer.

Never leave your woman alone when your friends are out to steal her.

But Malvina says you should never argue with a bee!


Also, don't use no green or rotten wood for your copper kettle fire - they'll git you by the smoke!


And, of course, never tell your kids NOT to put beans in their ears (or put raspberry jam all over the cat, etc.).
