Anyone have the words to Ducks in the Millpond? A verse goes something like: Ducks in the millpond Geese in the clover Fell in the millpond Wet all over

thx, David

For an instrumental version by a master fiddler, you cannot go past Emmett W. Lundy from Grayson County, Virginia. Some traditional verses that are sung include:

Ducks in the millpond, geese in the ocean
Hug them pretty girls, if I take a notion.
Chorus: Lord, Lord, gonna get on a rinktum
Lord, Lord, gonna get on a rinktum.
Ducks in the millpond, geese in the clover
Jumped in the bed, and the bed turned over
Ducks in the millpond, geese in the clover
Fell in the millpond, wet all over

Rain come and wet me, sun come and dry me
Step back pretty girl, don't you come nigh me

--Stewie.

I don't know what happened with my line breaks there, but (hopefully) it should have looked like this:

Ducks in the millpond, geese in the ocean
Hug them pretty girls, if I take a notion

Chorus: Lord, Lord, gonna get on a rinktum
Lord, Lord, gonna get on a rinktum

Ducks in the millpond, geese in the clover
Jumped in the bed, and the bed turned over

Ducks in the millpond, geese in the clover
Fell in the millpond, wet all over

Rain come and wet me, sun come and dry me
Step back pretty girl, don't you come nigh me

I was afraid of that...does anyone know what a "rinktum" is??? I was sure I had misunderstood the lyrics.

I think it is a group of folksingers
