Davy Crockett I'll tell you of a fight that I had with Davy Crockett, He was half and half horse and half kill-rocket. I met him a-going out a-cooning . Said I, "Where' s your gun?" Said he,"I have none." Just then l sald. "How you going to kill a coon?" Said he, "Pompey Smash, come and go along with Davy And l'll show you mighty quick how to grin a coon crazy." We hadn't went very far until we saw a squirrel Sitting on a pine log, eating sheep sorrel. He backed both ears and he brayed like a sinner. And Colonel Davy Crockett was a-grinning for his dinner. "Take care of black calf And don't you laugh, l'll back both ears. And l'll bite you in half." I took off my coat and laid down my ammunition. Said I. "Davy Crockett, I'll cool your ambition. We fought about a half a day and then agreed to drop it. For I was badly whipped and so was Davy Crockett. Recorded by Sarah Ogan Gunning, Folk Legacy SOF
