Burl Ives Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Grey Goose Last Sunday morning, Lord, Lord, Lord
Last Sunday morning, Lord, Lord, Lord

Oh, my daddy went a hunting, Lord, Lord, Lord
Oh, my daddy went a hunting, Lord, Lord, Lord

He went hunting for the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord
He went hunting for the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord

And he took along his shotgun, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yes he took along his shotgun, Lord, Lord, Lord

And along came the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yes along came the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord

Well, it's up to his shoulder, Lord, Lord, Lord
And he pulled back the hammer, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the gun went too-boo-loo, Lord, Lord, Lord
Ho, the gun went too-boo-loo, Lord, Lord, Lord

And down come the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord
And down come the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord

He was six weeks a-falling, Lord, Lord, Lord
He was six weeks a-falling, Lord, Lord, Lord

And they had a feather-picking, Lord, Lord, Lord
Ho, your wife and my wife, Lord, Lord, Lord

He was nine months a-cooking, Lord, Lord, Lord
He was nine months a-cooking, Lord, Lord, Lord

Then they put him on the table, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yes, they put him on the table, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the knife couldn't cut him, Lord, Lord, Lord
No, the knife couldn't cut him, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the fork couldn't stick him, Lord, Lord, Lord
No, the fork couldn't stick him, Lord, Lord, Lord

So they took him to the sawmill, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yes they took him to the sawmill, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the saw couldnt cut him, Lord, Lord, Lord
Ho, it broke the saws tooth out, Lord, Lord, Lord

So they took him to the hog pen, Lord, Lord, Lord
Yes, they took him to the hog pen, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the hogs wouldn't eat him, Lord, Lord, Lord
No, the hogs wouldn't eat him, Lord, Lord, Lord

And the last time I seen him, Lord, Lord, Lord
Ho, the last time I seen him, Lord, Lord, Lord

He was flying over the ocean, Lord, Lord, Lord
He was flying over the ocean, Lord, Lord, Lord

With a long string of goslings, Lord, Lord, Lord
With a long string of goslings, Lord, Lord, Lord

They was all going queen-quack, Lord, Lord, Lord
They was all going queen-quack, Lord, Lord, Lord

That's the story of the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord
That's the story of the grey goose, Lord, Lord, Lord
