Burl Ives – Buckeye Jim lyrics
Way up yonder above the sky
A bluebird lived in a jaybird's eye

Buckeye Jim, you can't go
Go weave and spin, you can't go
Buckeye Jim

Way up yonder above the moon
A blue jay nest in a silver spoon

Buckeye Jim, you can't go
Go weave and spin, you can't go
Buckeye Jim

Way down yonder in a wooden trough
An old woman died of the whoopin' cough

Buckeye Jim, you can't go
Go weave and spin, you can't go
Buckeye Jim

Way down yonder in a hollow log
A red bird danced with the green bullfrog

Buckeye Jim, you can't go
Go weave and spin, you can't go
Buckeye Jim
