Long String Of Goslins

Long String Of Goslins
Greylag goslings at Charnwood Water, Loughborough. Haven't seen a fox for three nights now, very frustrating.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

" One Sunday morning, lord, lord, lord,
The preacher went a huntin', lord, lord, lord,

He carried 'long his shotgun, lord, lord, lord,
'Long come a grey goose, lord, lord, lord,

The gun went go boo-loom, lord, lord, lord,
Down come the grey goose, lord, lord, lord,

We was six weeks a-fallin', lord, lord, lord,
We was six weeks a-haulin', lord, lord, lord,

Then my wife and your wife, lord, lord, lord,
They give a feather pickin', lord, lord, lord,

They was six weeks a pickin, lord, lord, lord,
Then they put him on a parboil, lord, lord, lord,

They was six weeks a boilin', lord, lord, lord,
Then they put him on the table, lord, lord, lord,

And the fork couldn't stick him, lord, lord, lord,
And the knife couldn't cut him, lord, lord, lord,

Then they throwed him in the hog pen, lord, lord, lord,
And the hog couldn't eat him, lord, lord, lord,

And he broke the hog's teeth out, lord, lord, lord,
Then they take him to the saw mill, lord, lord, lord,

And the saws couldn't cut him, lord, lord, lord,
He broke the saw's teeth out, lord, lord, lord,

And the last time I seed him, lord, lord, lord,
He was flyin' 'cross the ocean,

With a long string of goslins, lord, lord, lord,
And the hog went "quack, quack", lord, lord, lord,

And they all goin' "quack, quack", lord, lord, lord,
Hailin' the grey goose, lord, lord, lord "
