1 Hot corn, cold corn, bring along a demijohn
5 Fare thee well Uncle Bill, see you in the morning, yes 1 sir

Upstairs, downstairs, out in the kitchen,... (×3)
See Uncle Bill, just a-rarin' and a-pitching, yes sir

Old Aunt Peggy won't you fill 'em up again,... (×3)
Ain't had a drink since I don't know when, yes sir

Yonder come the preacher and the children are crying,... (×3)
Chickens all a-runnin' and the toenails a-flying, yes sir
