Hester Origins: She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain (42) RE: She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain 12 Nov 02


I've also heard a it sung with a parenthetical call-back in the 2-beat rest after each line, which seems to liven it up. e.g.:

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes ("Whoa, boy!")

We'll all come out to meet her when she comes ("Hi, babe!")

We will kill the old red rooster when she comes (2-note crowing)

Then we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes("Yum, yum!")

Cheers, Hester
