about

Old time traditional song....that we love to sing and dance to

lyrics

Chickens crowing in the old pine tree
Chickens crowing in the old pine tree
Chickens crowing in the old pine tree
down in North Carolina

Water bound and I can't get home
Water bound and I can't get home
Water bound and I can't get home
Down in North Carolina.

Say old man I want your daughter
Say old man I want your daughter
Say old man I want your daughter
down in North Carolina.

Tell me boy what you want her for
Tell me boy what you want her for
Tell me boy what you want her for
Down in North Carolina.

To make my bread and share my water
To make my bread and share my water
To make my bed and share my water
down in North Carolina.

If you don't let her go we're gonna run away
If you don't let her go we're gonna run away
If you don't let her go we're gonna run away
down in North Carolina.
