Come to town the other night
Heard the noise and saw the fight
Watchman was a-runnin' 'round
Said "Old Dan Tucker's come to town."

So, git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to come to supper.

Old Dan Tucker come to town
Ridin' a billygoat, leadin' a hound
Hound, he barked and the billygoat jumped
Throwed old Dan, he straddled a stump.

So, git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to come to supper.

Old Dan Tucker was a fine old man
Washed his face in a frying pan
Combed his hair with a wagon wheel
And died with a toothache in his heel.

So, git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Git out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to come to supper.
