The Bluetail Fly (Jimmy Crack Corn)

When I was young I used to wait

On Master and hand him his plate

And pass the bottle when he got dry

And brush away the bluetail fly

REFRAIN:

Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care

Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care

Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care

Old Master’s gone away

One day he ride around the farm

The flies so numerous they did swarm

One chanced to bite him on the thigh

The devil take the bluetail fly

(repeat REFRAIN)

The pony run, he jump, he pitch

He threw my master in a ditch

He died and the jury wondered why

The verdict was the bluetail fly

(repeat REFRAIN)

They lay him under a ‘simmon tree

His epitaph is there to see

“Beneath this stone I’m forced to lie

A victim of the bluetail fly!”

(repeat REFRAIN)
