Bruce Springsteen – Old Dan Tucker lyrics
Old Dan Tucker was a fine old man,
Washed his face in a fryin' pan,
Combed his head with a wagon wheel,
Died with a toothache in his heel

So get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
It's too late to get your supper
Supper's over and dinner is cookin',
Old Dan Tucker just standin' there lookin'

Old Dan Tucker come to town
Swingin' the ladies round and round
First to the right, then to the left,
Then to the one that you love best

Old Dan Tucker clumb a tree
His Lord and master for to see
The limb it broke and he had a fall,
Never got to see his Lord at all

Old Dan Tucker come to town,
Riding a billy goat, leading a hound
The hound dog barked and the billy goat jumped
And it threw old Dan right over a stump

Old Dan Tucker was a fine old man,
Washed his face in a fryin' pan,
Combed his head with a wagon wheel,
Died with a toothache in his heel

So get out the way, old Dan Tucker,
It's too late to get your supper
Supper's over and the dishes are washed
All that's left is a piece of squash
