​Crawdad Song

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the Compilation album The Lost Topic Tapes: Cowes Harbour 1957 (2004).

You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey
You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe
You get a line and I'll get a pole
We'll all go down to that crawdad hole
Honey, baby mine

Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, honey
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, babe
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back
See them crawdads he can pack
Honey, babe oh mine

What did the duck say to the drake, honey
What did the duck say to the drake, babe
What did the duck say to the drake
There ain't no crawdads in that lake
Honey, babe oh mine

Sell them crawdads two for a dime, honey
Sell them crawdads two for a dime, babe
Sell them crawdads two for a dime
We can get them any old time
Honey, babe oh mine

What 'chu gonna do when the lake runs dry, honey
What 'chu gonna do when the lake runs dry, babe
What 'chu gonna do when the lake runs dry
Sit on the bank and watch the crawdads die
Honey, babe oh mine

Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, honey
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back, baby
Yonder comes a man with a sack on his back
See them crawdads he can pack
Honey, babe oh mine

You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey
You get a line and I'll get a pole, baby
You get a line and I'll get a pole
We'll all go down to that crawdad hole
Honey, babe oh mine
