HOPALONG PETER
traditional


D#
Old Uncle Peter, he got tight
D# Bb
Started up to heaven one stormy night
D# G#
The road being rough and him not well
Bb
He lost, his way and he went to ...


CHORUS:
D#
Hopalong Peter where you goin'?
D# Bb
Hopalong Peter where you goin'?
D# G#
Hopalong Peter won't you bear in mind
Bb D#
I ain't comin' back 'til the gooseberry time


Old mother Hubbard and her dog were Dutch
A bow-legged rooster and he hobbled on a crutch
The hen chewed tobacco and the duck drank wine
The goose played the fiddle on the pumpkin vine

-CHORUS-

Down in the barn yard playin' seven up
The old tomcat and the little yellow pup
The old mother Hubbard she's a pickin' out the fleas
The rooster in the cream jar up to his knees

-CHORUS-

I've got a sweet gal in this old town
If she weighs an ounce she weighs seven hundred pounds
Every time my sweet gal turns once around
The heels of her shoe makes a hole in the ground

-CHORUS-

-CHORUS-
