Ground Hog

Another tune from the Strawberry Hill Fiddlers/Raspberry Fiddlers' repertoire, this number has lyrics; hear it sung (with gusto) by Doc Watson at www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbxoNcwi0AY

Here are the lyrics the Srawberry Hill gang has invited us to sing with them:

Shoulder up your gun, and whistle up your dog,
Shoulder up your gun, and whistle up your dog,
Off to the woods for to catch a groundhog.
Oh, groundhog!

Run here, Sally, with a ten-foot pole,
Run here, Sally, with a ten-foot pole
To twist this whistle-pig out of his hole.
Oh, groundhog!
