Old Dan Tucker was a fine old man
 Washed his face with a fryin' pan
 Combed his hair with a wagon wheel
And died with a toothache in his heel

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 

Old Dan Tucker come to town
 Riding a billy goat, leading a hound 
The hound dog barked and billy goat jumped 
And landed old Tucker on a stump 

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 

Old Dan Tucker got drunk an fell
In the fire and kicked up holy hell
A red-hot coal got in his shoe
An oh my Lord the ashes flew

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 

Now Old Dan Tucker come to town
 Swinging them ladies all round  First to the right an then to the left
Then to the gal that he loved best

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper 
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker 
You're too late to get your supper
