Camptown Races

{loadposition CamptownRaces}

1. The Camptown ladies sing this song: Doo-dah! Doo-dah!

 

Camptown racetrack’s five miles long. Oh! Doo-dah day!


 

I came down there with my hat caved in. Doo-dah! Doo-dah!

 

I went back home with a pocket full of tin. Oh! Doo-dah day!

 

Chorus:

 

Going to run all night!


 

Going to run all day!


 

I’ll bet my money on the bobtail nag –

 

Somebody bet on the bay.

 

2. The long-tail filly and the big black horse Doo-dah! Doo-dah!

 

They fly the track and they both cut across Oh! Doo-dah day!

 

The blind horse wallowed in a big mud hole …


 

Can’t touch bottom with a ten foot pole. …

 

3. Old muley cow came onto the track …

 

The bobtail flung her over his back …

 

They flew along like a railroad car …

 

Running a race with a shooting star …

 

4. See them flying on a ten-mile heat …

 

‘Round the racetrack, then repeat …


 

I won my money on the bobtail nag …


 

I keep my money in an old tow bag …
