Camptown Races


Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-dah, doo-dah
Camptown racetrack five miles long.
Oh doo-dah day.

Goin’ to run all night,
Goin’ to run all day.
I’ll bet my money on the bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the bay.

Oh, the long tailed filly and the big black horse,
Doo-dah, doo-dah
Come to a mud hole and they all cut across,
Oh doo-dah day

I went down there with my hat caved in,
Doo-dah, doo-dah
I came back home with a pocket full of tin
Oh doo-dah day
