​Groundhog Blues

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

Well now, listen, listen people, what Lil' Son gon' say
You know, I believe tomorrow, that is gonna be Groundhog Day
Because that old groundhog, hmm, oh man, rootin' in my buddy's back yard
Tell me there ain't nothin' in the world can stop him but the ground when it get real hard

Tell me this groundhog, oh man, he don't root in one place long
Before he have rooted you out of your wife and home
But if I catch the groundhog rootin', oh man, rootin' in my back yard
Well, I betcha I got somethin' to stop him, oh man, way before the ground get hard

If I catch up to a hog in my yard, yes man, I tell you what I'm gon' do
I'm gonna cut his head about four ways and my old woman's too
If I catch a hog in my yard, oh man, rootin' 'round my back door
I betcha my last bottom dollar, yes man, he won't root no more

Well there's a groundhog for tomorrow, groundhog for the next day, too
Well there's a groundhog 'cross the country, partner, you don't know what he's going to
There's a groundhog rootin, oh man rootin in your back yard
Well now there ain't nothin' in the world can stop him, oh Lord, but the ground when it gets real hard

I catch a hog in my yard, just awhile before day
I'm gonna get my shotgun, man, and drive him away
If I catch a hog in my yard, oh man just awhile before day
I'm gonna get my double barrel shotgun, oh and drive that mule away
