Jimmy Crack Corn

In the style of

Traditional

Lyrics

big old owl
with eyes so bright
on many a dark
and starry night

i've often heard
my true love say
sing all night
and sleep all day

jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
old master's
gone away

said the blackbird
to the crow
down to the cornfield
let us go

pulling up corn
has been our trade
ever since
adam and eve
was made

jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
old master's
gone away

said the sheldrake
to the crane
when do you think
we'll have some rain

the farm's so muddy
and the brook so dry
if it wasn't
for the tadpoles
we'd all die

jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
old master's
gone away

when i was a boy
i used to wait
on master's table
and pass the plate

hand 'round
the bottle
when he got dry
and brush away
the blue-tail fly

jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
jimmy crack corn
and i don't care
old master's
gone away
