TURKEY IN THE STRAW John Renfro Davis As I was a-gwine down the road, With a tired team and a heavy load, I crack'd my whip and the leader sprung, I says day-day to the wagon tongue. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw. Went out to milk, and I didn't know how, I milked the goat instead of the cow. A monkey sittin' on a pile of straw, A-winkin' at his mother-in-law. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw. Met Mr. Catfish comin' down stream. Says Mr. Catfish, "What does you mean?" Caught Mr. Catfish by the snout, And turned Mr. Catfish wrong side out. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw. Came to a river and I couldn't get across, Paid five dollars for a blind old hoss; Wouldn't go ahead, nor he wouldn't stand still, So he went up and down like an old saw mill. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw. As I came down the new cut road, Met Mr. Bullfrog, met Miss Toad And every time Miss Toad would sing, Old Bullfrog cut a pigeon wing. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw. Oh I jumped in the seat and I gave a little yell The horses ran away, broke the wagon all to hell Sugar in the gourd and honey in the horn I never been so happy since the day I was born. Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay, Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw And twist 'em up a tune called Turkey in the Straw.
