Camptown Races S. Foster

De camptown ladies sing dis song doodah, doodah
De camptown racetrack five miles long
Oh, doodah day!
I come down dah wid my hat caved in
Doodah, doodah!
I go back home wid a pocket full of tin
Oh doodah day!

Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on de bobtail nag
Somebody bet on de bay.

De long tail filly and de big black hoss
Doodah doodah
Dey fly de track and dey both cut across
Oh doodah day
De blind hoss sticken in a big mud hole
Doodah doodah
Can't touch bottom wid a ten foot pole
Oh doodah day

Old muley cow come on to de track
Doodah doodah
De bobtail fling her ober his back
Oh doodah day
Den fly along like a railroad car
Doodah doodah
Runnin a race wid a shootin star
Oh doodah day

See dem flyin on a ten mile heat
Doodah doodah
Round de race track, den repeat
Oh doodah day
I win my money on de bobtail nag
Doodah doodah
I keep my money in an old towbag
Oh doodah day
