Hoagy Carmichael wrote and recorded this ditty, and I will get out my copy of it and type out the lyrics for you as soon as people wake up in my house (its 5 am here). I'd be happy to put it on a tape for you if you want it. Email me: kincasslagh@worldnet.att.net

Subject: Lyr Add: HUGGIN' AND CHALKIN' (Hoagy Carmichael)
From: Bobby O'Brien

Huggin' and Chalkin'
(Clancy Hayes and Kermit Goell)


I’ve got a gal who's mighty sweet
Big blue eyes and tiny feet
Her name is Rosabelle McKee
And she tips the scales at 303.

Oh gee, but ain't it grand to have a gal
So big and fat that when you go to hug her
You don't know where you're at
You have to take a piece of chalk in your hand
And hug aways and chalk a mark to see where you began

One day I was a huggin' and chalkin'
And a huggin' and a chalkin' away
When I met another fella with some chalk in his hand
Comin’ around the other way
Over the mountain
Comin’ around the other way.

Nobody ever said I'm weak
My bones don't ache,
My joints don't creak
But I get weak and I go limp
Every time I see my baby blimp

Oh gee, but ain't it grand to have a gal so big and fat
That when you go to hug her
You have to take a piece of chalk in your hand
And hug a bit and chalk a mark and see where you began

One day I was a huggin' and a chalkin' and
A-beggin' her to be my bride
When I met another fella with some chalk in his hand
Comin’ around the other side
Over the mountain
Comin’ around the other side
She’s a mile wide
Chalkin’ up a mark down in Yellowstone Park
When I met another fella with some chalk in his hand
Comin’ around the other side
Over the mountain
Over the great divide!!!


Music and lyrics by Clancy Hayes and Kermit Goell. Lead vocals by Hoagy Carmichael. Backup vocals by the Chickadees.
1947 Decca 78 rpm matrix #23675.

Huggin' and Chalkin' was recently recorded by Steve James for his first album, "2 track mind". 4 or 5 years ago, I'd guess. The album is wonderful, mostly just Steve and his old National guitar. He's one of the finest slide+ragtime pickers around, so JESTER! say "check it out". The record company is ANTONES. Usually classified under Bl;ues.

It is from an old Woody Woodbury album
Gee but ain't it grand to have a gal so big and fat
That when you hug her, you don't know where you're at.
I took a piece of chalk in my hand
and hugged a way and chalked a line to see where I began
One day, I was a hugging and a chalking and a begging her to be my bride,
when I met another fella with some chalk in his hand
Coming round the other side
oh yeah
coming round the other side.

Comin' around the other way
Over the mountain, across the great divide.
