Ride Old Buck to Water

Lip synch in the grocery store. Medley warning! Sally Goodin and then (at 1:19) Ride Old Buck to Water. Casey & Minna also covered Paul Simon's "I know what I Know".

Key of A. Two parts. Some folks on this page repeat 2 and 2, some do 2 and 4, and one does 3 and 3.

  • Fiddle & banjo [utoob] (pay no attention to what they call this song)
  • A jam at Mt Airy fiddlers convention [dark video on tube]. This is a great jam session. High on monotony.
  • Skillet Lickers [non-video on tube] or [mp3 at Slippery Hill].
  • We have this tune on a CD called In the Dance Tent by the Horse Flies.
  • Chicken Chokers [non-video on tube].
  • Bert Layne with Pappy and Tommy Taylor old radio show [non-video, tube, skip to 2:00]

Lyrics

Ride Old Buck to water, ride Old Buck to water.Saw him down at the foot to the hill, if he aint' a-come back, I'd-a been there still.Ride Old Buck in a halter. Sold! for a dollar and a quarter. Raccoon treed the possum, raccoon treed the possum.Don't you cry my honey, don't you cry my honey.
