Camptown Race

This song is by Pete Seeger and appears on the album American Favorite Ballads, Vol. 2 (2003).

Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I bet my money on a bob-tail nag-
Somebody bet on the bay.

Oh, the Camptown ladies sing this song-Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Camptown race-track eight miles long-Oh! doo-dah day!
Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I bet my money on a bob-tail nag-
Somebody bet on the bay.

Thee long tail filly and a big black hoss-Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Come to a mud hole, they all cut across-Oh! doo-dah-day!
Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I bet my money on a bob-tail nag-
Somebody bet on the bay.

I went down South with my hat caved in-Doo-dah! doo-dah!
I come back North with a pocket full of tin-Oh! doo-dah day!
Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on a bob-tail nag-
Somebody bet on the bay.

Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on a bob-tail nag-
Somebody bet on the bay.
