Shuckin’ of the Corn

Lyrics

(American folk song)

I have a ship on the ocean,
All lined with silver and gold,
Before I’d see my true love suffer
That ship should be anchored and sold.

I’m a-goin’ to the shuckin’ of the corn,
I’m a-goin’ to the shuckin’ of the corn,
A-shuckin’ of the corn and a-blowin’ of the horn,
I’m a-goin’ to the shuckin’ of the corn

  1. Don’t know why these songs keep coming up in my memory. I keep remembering songs from elementary school music class. Songs like Shuckin of the corn, Happy Wonderer, and the Mary and Martha song.

  2. Maybe we’re remembering different parts of the same song. I remember:
    The wind blows cold in Cairo,
    The sun refuses to shine.
    Before I’d see my true love suffer
    I’d work all the summertime.

    I’d sing that to my kids and now to my granddaughter. They all thought it was crazy but funny.
