​Springfield Mountain

This song is by Woody Guthrie and appears on the album Woody Guthrie Sings Folk Songs (1962) and on the album Hard Travelin' (1964).

On Springfield Mountain there did dwell
A lovely youth I knowed him well.

Too roo de nay, too roo de no

This lovely youth one day did go
Down to the meadom for to mow.

Too roo de nay, too roo de no.

He scarce had mowed quite round the field
When a crul serpent bit his heel.

Too roo de nay, too roo de no.

They took him home to molly dear
Which made him feel so very gueer.

Too roo de nay, too roo de no.

Now Molly had two ruby lips
With which the poison she did sip.

Too roo de nay, too roo de no.

Now Molly had a rotting tooth,
And so the poison killed them both.
