The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Pig in a Pen

I got a pig at home in a pen
corn to feed him 4 on
1 All I need's a pretty little girl
to 5 feed 'em when I'm 1 gone

Goin' on the mountain
to sow a little cane
Raise a barrel of sorghum
sweeten ol' Liza Jane

Black clouds a-risin'
sure sign of rain
Get the old gray bonnet on
little Liza Jane

Yonder comes that gal of mine
how do you think I know
Tell by that gingham gown
hangin' down so low

Bake 'em biscuits, baby
bake 'em good and brown
When you get them biscuits baked
we're Alabama bound

It’s on Strum Machine!
