Johnny Horton - Old Dan Tucker Lyrics




Old Dan Tucker's a fine old man
Washed his face in a fryin' pan
Combed his hair with a wagon wheel
And died with a toothache in his heel

Hey get outa the way, old Dan Tucker
Too late to get your supper
Supper's over and dinner's cookin'
An' Ol' Dan Tucker jus' stand there lookin'

Now old Dan Tucker is come to town
Riding a billy goat leadin' a hound
The hound dog bark and the billy goat jump
Sent Ol' Dan Tucker right straddle of a stump

Hey get outa the way, old Dan Tucker
Too late to get your supper
Supper's over and dinner's cookin'
An' Ol' Dan Tucker jus' stand there lookin'

Now old Dan Tucker he got drunk
Fell in the fire and kicked up a chunk
Gotta live coal in his shoe
And oh my lawd how the ashes flew

Hey get outa the way, old Dan Tucker
Too late to get your supper
Supper's over and dinner's cookin'
An' Ol' Dan Tucker jus' stand there lookin'

    I remember this song from when I was a lad. I always thought it was just a folk tune and never knew anyone had actually recorded it.
