Title Sing Along with Grandpa
Description SING ALONG WITH GRANDPA Lowell Brady Manti, Utah Senior Division Honorable Mention Poetry (This poem includes lines from a pioneer version of an old southern folk song) Grandpa played in dancing bands He also played in church He played his fiddle half the night For dainty shoe and starchy shirt. Square Dance I O what would you give me for the old sow's hide? O what would you give me for the old sow's hide? The old sow's hide would make you just as fine a Saddle as you ever did ride. Grandpa strummed his banjo too And grandma did her part She played beside him long hours through On her old Jew's Harp Square Dance II O what would you give me for the old pig's snout? O what would you give me for the old pig's snout? The old pig's snout would make you just as fine a Plow share as ever cut dirt. Grandpa sang of old Kentucky His kinfolk and his youth He sang of cotton fields and rice Shoofly pie and turtle tooth. Song I Nigger on the woodpile Don't you hear him holler? Pretty girl at our house Fat as she can waller. -107-
