Hello, boys and girls. This is Burl Ives, and I've come to sing some songs for you.

Here's a song about a grey goose.

The strangest goose...



Last Sunday morning (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


Oh, my daddy went a hunting (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


He went hunting for the grey goose (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


And he took along his shotgun, (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Yes, he took along his shotgun (Lord, lord, lord)


And along come the grey goose (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Yes, along come the grey goose (Lord, Lord, Lord)


Well, it's up to his shoulder (Lord, Lord, Lord)
And he pulled back the hammer (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the gun went too-boo-loo (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


And down come the grey goose (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


He was six weeks a-falling (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


And they had a feather-picking (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Ho! your wife and my wife (Lord, Lord, Lord)


He was nine months a-cooking, (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


Then they put him on the table (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Yes, they put him on the table (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the knife couldn't cut him (Lord, Lord, Lord)
No, the knife couldn't cut him (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the fork couldn't stick him (Lord, Lord, Lord)
No, the fork couldn't stick him (Lord, Lord, Lord)


So they took him to the sawmill (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Yes, they took him to the sawmill (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the saw couldn't cut him (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Ho! it broke the saws tooth out (Lord, Lord, Lord)


So they him to the hog pen (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Yes, they him to the hog pen (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the hogs wouldnt eat him (Lord, Lord, Lord)
No, the hogs wouldnt eat him (Lord, Lord, Lord)


And the last time I seen him (Lord, Lord, Lord)
Ho! the last time I seen him (Lord, Lord, Lord)


He was flying over the ocean (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


With a long string of goslings (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


They was all going queen-quack (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]


That's the story of the grey goose (Lord, Lord, Lord) [2x]
