"Jimmy Crack Corn - the Blue Tail Fly"

Refr: Jimmy crack corn an' I don't care
Jimmy crack corn an' I don't care
Jimmy crack corn an' I don't care
The Master's gone away
When I was young I used to wait
On my Master 'n bring him his plate
And passed the bottle when he got dry
And brush away the blue tail fly
Refr
When he would ride around the farm
So numerous the flies they all would swarm
One chanced to bite him on the thigh
Oh, the devil take the blue tail fly
Refr
When he would ride in the afternoon
I would follow with the hickory broom
The pony began to run and shy
When bitten by the blue tail fly
Refr
The pony run, he jumped, he pitched
He threw my Master in the ditch
And when he died the juries wondered why
The verdict was the blue tail fly
Refr
They burr'd him under the 'simmon tree
His epitaph was there to see:
Upon this stone I'm forced to lie
A victim of the blue tail fly
Refr
