Shoulder up your gun and whistle up your dog
Shoulder up your gun and whistle up your dog
Off to the woods for to catch a ground hog
Oh, ground hog

Run here, Sally, with a ten-foot pole
Run here, Sally, with a ten-foot pole
To twist this whistle pig out of his hole
Oh, ground hog

SOLO

Here comes Sal with a snicker and a grin
Here comes Sal with a snicker and a grin
The ground hog gravy all over her chin
Oh, ground hog

Look at them fellers, they're a-goin' wild
Look at them fellers, they're a-goin' wild
Eat that hog before he's struck or biled
Oh, ground hog

SOLO

I dug down, but I didn't dig deep
I dug down, but I didn't dig deep
There laid a whistle pig, fast asleep
Oh, ground hog

Now the meat's in the cupboard and the butter's in the churn
Meat's in the cupboard and the butter's in the churn
If that ain't ground hog, I'll be durned
Oh, ground hog

Well, you eat up the meat and you save the hide
You eat up the meat and you save the hide
Make the best shoestring that ever was tied
Oh, ground hog

SOLO X 2

Look at them fellers, they're about to fall
Look at them fellers, they're about to fall
Eat 'til their britches won't button up at all
Oh, ground hog

A little piece of cornbread a-layin' on the shelf

You want any more, you can sing it yourself
Oh, ground hog
