raredance Wild Boar: History, Lyrics & Discussion-Child #18 (105* d) Lyr Add: BANGUM RODE THE RIVERSIDE 24 Aug 02

There are two versions in "Ballads and Folk songs of the Suthwest" by Ethel and Chauncey O. Moore (1964, U of Oklahoma Press). Here is the shorter first one. The second will follow when I get it typed.


(sung by Mrs. Paul Hightower fo Sallisaw. She learned it from her grandfather who was from Virginia.

Bangum rode the riverside,
Didley, O day dum
Bangum rode the riverside,
With two horses and a slide,
Quadley O que, quidley O quey,
Didley, O day dum.

There's a wild hog in these woods,
Bangum chased him to his den
And found the bones of a thousand men.

Bangum drew his wooden knife,
Bangum drew his wooden knife,
Swore he'd take that wild hog's life.
