Lynchburg Town

Lynchburg Town

Who’s goin’ down to town
Who’s goin’ down to town
Who’s goin’ down to Wilmington
To carry my tobacco ‘round.

Once I had an old big dog
I wished they’d bring him back
Run them big hogs over the fence
And the little ones through the cracks.

Well, I married a little gal
And I brought her from the South
She balled her hair so doggone tight
She couldn’t shut her mouth.

Possum up a ‘simmon tree
Raccoon on the ground
Raccoon said, you son of a gun,
Throw them ‘simmons down.

Possom shake the tree ‘Simmons start to fall
Raccoon said, you doggone fool,
I didn’t want ’em all!

Johnson had an old grey horse
His name was Martin Brown
Every foot old Martin had
Would cover an acre of ground.
