"Ha Ha Thisaway" as written by and John A. Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.

When I was a little boy, little boy, little boy,
When I was a little boy 12 years old.
Papa went and left me, left me,
Papa went and left me so I was told.

Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.

Mama come and got me, she got me, got me,
Mama come and got me to save my soul.
Mama never whooped me, whooped me,
Mama never whooped me so I was told.

Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.

I went to school, went to school, went to school boys,
Went to school when I was 12 years old.
I obeyed the rules, the rules, the rules boys,
I obeyed the rules as I was told.

Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.

I went to a teacher, teacher, teacher,
Went to a teacher to save my soul.
Teacher was a preacher, preacher, preacher,
Teacher was a preacher so I was told.

Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.

I liked my lesson, lesson lesson,
Liked my lesson to save my soul.
Wasn't that a blessing, blessing, blessing,
Wasn't that a blessing so I was told.

Ha ha this-a way,
Ha ha that-a way,
Ha ha this-a way,
Man oh man.
