Ole Slewfoot

Lyrics written by Jennifer:

June Carter:
High on the mountain
What do I see
There’s bear tracks, bear tracks
Looking back at me

You better get your rifle, boys
Before it’s too late
That bear’s got a little pig
And headed for the gate

Chorus:
He’s big around the middle
And he’s broad across the rump
Running 90 miles and hour, taking 40 feet jumps
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been treed

Johnny Cash: And some folks say he looks a lot like me

June:
Well, I got me some money
And I got me some bees
And they started making honey
Way up in the trees

I’d chop down the tree
But my honey’s all gone
Oh, Slewfoot’s done
Made himself at home

He’s big around the middle
And he’s broad across the rump
Running 90 miles and hour, taking 40 feet jumps
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been treed

Carlene Carter, Rosey Nix, Rosanne Cash:
Some folks say he looks a lot like, Daddy

June:
Winter’s coming on
And it’s 40 below
The river’s frozen over
So where can he go

I’ll get me a rifle, boys
And run him in the well
Then I’ll shoot him in the bottom
Just to hear him yell

Chorus:
He’s big around the middle
And he’s broad across the rump
Running 90 miles and hour, taking 40 feet jumps
Ain’t never been caught, he ain’t never been treed
June: Some folks say he looks a lot like my Johnny
