(American folk song, Appalachia)

1. Way down yonder, above the sky,
A bluebird lived in a jaybird’s eye.

Buckeye Jim, you can’t go.
Go weave and spin, you can’t go.
Buckeye Jim.

2. Way up yonder above the moon,
A bluejay nests in a silver spoon. Refrain

3. Way down yonder on a hollow log,
A red bird danced with a green bullfrog. Refrain
