Hot Corn, Cold Corn

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Jerry played this live a couple of times with David Grisman, and recorded it with him on "Not For Kids Only"

Upstairs, downstairs, out in the kitchen
Upstairs, downstairs, out in the kitchen
Upstairs, downstairs, out in the kitchen
I met an old cook just a reelin' and a pitchin'
Yes sir

Chorus
Hot Corn, cold corn, bring along the demijohn
Hot Corn, cold corn, bring along the demijohn
Hot Corn, cold corn, bring along the demijohn
Fair thee well, uncle Bill, see you in the morning
Yes sir

Old aunt Sally, won't you fill'em up again
Old aunt Sally, won't you fill'em up again
Old aunt Sally, won't you fill'em up again
I ain't had a drink since the lord knows when
Yes sir

[chorus]

All I need to keep me happy
Is two little boys to call me Pappy
One named Paul and one named Davy
One likes ham and the other loves gravy
Yes sir

[chorus]

Preacher's in the pulpit takin' in the money
Children in the bee hive takin' in the honey
Old aunt Sally just a jumpin' for joy
Happiest lot of people that ever I saw
Yes sir

[chorus]

Preacher's all a comin' and the children are a cryin'
Preacher's all a comin' and the children are a cryin'
Preacher's all a comin' and the children are a cryin'
Chicken heads a-wringin' and a toenails flyin'
Yes sir

[chorus]
