I once went a courtin’;
Down in ‘ol Alabama.
I brought along a donkey;
and a slice of salama!
I saw her there a sitting;
in a dirty lawn chair,
And asked her nicely
to watch Yogi Bear.
Gom-yey-on-yo!
Crying all night long;

Gom-yey-onnnnn-yo!!
That’s the name of this song.
I once digged me a hole;
down in ‘ol Tennesee.
I brought along a pickle;
and a little monkey.
I saw her there a sitting;
on a rusty old chair;
and asked her while crying;
to please sniff my hair!!!
Gom-yey-on-yo!
Crying all night long;
Gom-yey-onnnnn-yo!!
That’s the name of this song.
