OLD RATTLER Grandpa Jones Old Rattler was a good old dog; As blind as he could be Ev'ry night 'bout supper time; I believe that dog could see. Refrain: Here! Rattler, Here! Here!; Here! Rattler! Here! Call old Rattler from the barn; Here! Rattler! Here! Old Rattler tree'd the other night; And I tho't he'd tree'd a 'coon When I come to find out; He was barkin' at the moon. Refrain: Well, grandma had a yeller hen; We set her as you know We set her on three buzzard eggs; And hatched out one old crow. Refrain: Grandpa had a muley cow; She was muley when she's born It took a jaybird forty year; To fly from horn to horn. Refrain: Now if I had a needle and thread; As fine as I could sew I'd sew my sweetheart to my back; And down the road I'd go Refrain: Old Rattler was a smart old dog; Even tho' he was blind He wouldn't hurt one single thing; Tho' he was very fine. One night I saw a big fat 'coon; Climb up in a tree I called old Rattler right away; To get 'im down fer me. But Rattler wouldn't do it; Because he liked that 'coon I saw them walkin' paw in paw; Later by the light of the moon. Refrain: Now old Rattler's dead and gone; Like all good dogs do You better not act a dog yourself; Or you'll be goin' there too. Refrain: (Contributed by John Sanders - May 2002)
