​The Old Grey Goose Is Dead

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy (1974).

Traditional
Arranged by david allan coe

Go tell aunt rhody
The old grey goose is dead

Grandpa found her dying
In the millpond on her head

The gander won't eat now
Gander won't eat now
Because his wife is dead

Let's pray for the babies
Pray for the babies
Because their mama's dead

Somebody go tell aunt rhody
Go tell aunt rhody
The old grey goose is dead

Somebody go tell aunt rhody
I want you to go tell aunt rhody
Go tell aunt rhody
Tell her that the old grey goose is dead

Lord, now go tell aunt rhody
Children, go tell aunt rhody
Want you to go tell aunt rhody
Tell her that the old grey goose is dead

Everybody go tell aunt rhody
Now, now, go tell aunt rhody
Now, now, go tell aunt rhody
Go tell aunt rhody - tell her
That the old grey goose is dead
