Did you ever see the Devil, Uncle Joe?
Written by: Traditional (arrangement & additional/modified lyrics by Joe Rollin Porter)

Corn Stalk Fiddle and a shoestring bow
Did you ever see the Devil, Uncle Joe?
Short tailed rabbit and a long tailed crow
Did you ever see the Devil, Uncle Joe?

CHORUS:
Did you ever see the Devil, Uncle Joe?
Did you ever see the Devil, Uncle Joe?

Railroad, railroad, steamboat and canal
hadn't of been for women and whiskey
I never would have tasted Hell

(Chorus)

Mama had a little babe
and yowled when it was born
She fixed it in a brandy keg
and called him Jim Crack Corn

(Chorus)

Possum's up a simmon tree
Raccoon's on the ground
Raccoon says "Hey up there,
won't you shake some simmons on down?"
and "Did you ever see the Devil Uncle Joe?
Did you ever see the Devil Uncle Joe?"

Rabbit runnin' through the grass
Foxes right behind
weeds & trees & cockleburrs
is all those foxes find

(chorus)
