I WON'T GO HUNTIN' WITH YOU JAKE (BUT I'LL GO CHASIN' WIMMIN) (Stuart Hamblen) Stuart Hamblen - 1949 Jimmy Dean - 1961 Buck Owens - 1971 Ivor & The Engines - 2002 Also recorded by: Houston Wells; Hermann Lammers Meyer. Oh, it's springtime in the mountains and I'm full of mountain dew Can't even read my catalogue like I used to do I'm a-settin' in that little shed that's right back of the house And there comes Jake with all of his hounds, but he's gonna hear me shout I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin Go put your hounds back in the pens and quit your silly grinnin' The moon is right and I'm half tight, my life is just beginnin' I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin Let's go down to the meetin' house and wait till they start home Them gals that come from Possum Creek will always leave alone We'll run 'em down the corn rows, them sassy little misses We'll scare them pretty gals to death, we'll stop and throw 'em kisses But I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin Go put them hounds back in the pens and quit your silly grinnin' The moon is right and I'm half tight, my life is just beginnin' I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin (Banjo Solo) Now go wash your face and comb your hair, it's dang near time to start But let me tell you 'fore we go, there's one that's trapped my heart Don't chase that gal with the yellar hair and wears a dress o' green Well that little gal belongs to me, I know she's past sixteen But I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin Go put them hounds back in them pens and quit your silly grinnin' The moon is right and I'm half tight, my life is just beginnin' I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin Now I was headin' for the general store when a silly thing I seen They make 'em in the city and it's called a magazine I turned to page thirty-two and look at what I found Them gals wear clothes that we ain't seen beneath them gingham gowns But I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake but I'll go chasin' wimmin Go put your hounds back in the pens and quit your silly grinnin' The moon is right and I'm half tight, my life is just beginnin' I won't go huntin' wi' you Jake, but I'll go chasin' wimmin (Transcribed from the Stuart Hamblen recording by Mel Priddle - February 2011)
