GUEST,Shanty Kees Lyr Req: Nothin' but a Humbug (9) Lyr Req: Nothin' but a Humbug 16 Apr 05


I'm looking for the words to the above mentioned song. I think I've got most of them but still have some words missing. This is the version of Bob Walser. Is there someone who can complete the lyrics?

NOTHIN' BUT A HUMBUG

Well you're nothin' but a humbug,
So they say, So they say,
Well you're nothin' but a humbug,
That's all I know.

You're nothin' but a humbug,
So they say, So they say,
Well you're nothin' but a humbug,
And that's all I know.

Well a catfish grow on a huckleberry vine,
Catfish grow on a huckleberry vine,

Well dandy Jim from North Carolina,
He's come home for to marry Dinah,

Well I have never seen the likes since I been born,
Sailor on the ????rail cracking out corn,

One day the blackbird said to the crow,
Why do you love your farmer so,

Well that's my trade since Adam was born,
???? farmers corn,

Said the blackbird to the crow,
Don't tell us pretty girls ??? know,

Well high and dry we'll hoist her high,
Hoist her high for a bulgine-pie.
