Lyrics

Where are you going, my good old man?
Where are you going, my honey my lamb?
Where are you going, my good old man?
Best old man in the world. Spoken: To the store

What are you going to buy… Spoken: New clothes
How much will it cost… Spoken: Fifty cents
What do you want for supper… Spoken: sack of potatoes
A sack will kill you… Spoken: I don’t care
Where do you want to be buried… In the chimney corner
Ashes will fall on you… It doesn’t matter; as long as I’m close to you.
