I Won't Go Huntin' With You Jake (But I'll Go Chasin' Women) (Stuart Hamblen) Oh, it's springtime in the mountains and I'm full of mountain dew Can't even read my catalog - like I used to do I'm a-settin' in that little shed that's right back of the house Here's comes old Jake with all the hounds; but he's gonna hear me shout: CHORUS: Oh, I won't go huntin' with you, Jake, but I'll go chasin' women So put them hounds back in the pens and quit your silly grinnin' Well, the moon is bright, and I'm half tight; my life is just beginnin' I won't go huntin' with you, Jake, but I'll go chasin' women. Let's go down to the meetin' house and wait till they start home Them gals that live on Possum Creek we'll always leave alone We'll run them down the corn rows, them sassy little misses We'll scare them pretty gals to death; we'll stop and throw 'em kisses. Now, go wash your face and comb your hair, 'cause it's durn near time to start But let me tell you 'fore you go, there's one that's got my heart Don't chase that gal with the yaller hair and wears a dress of green For that little gal belongs to me, I know she's past sixteen. Now I was headed for the general store, when a silly thing I seen They make 'em in the city - called a magazine I turned to page thirty-two, and look at what I found Them gals wear clothes that we ain't seen beneath them gingham gowns.
