Subject: RE: Kemo Kimo info
IN 1947 I attended a one room rural school in Gordonville, Mo (near Cape Girardeau, in the southeast part of the state. We sang Kimo Kimo much like the Doc Watson version posted by Richie.

'Way down yonder on Beaver Creek
Sing a Song Kitty, won't you ki-me-O!
The darkies grow to be 6 feet
Sing a song Kitty, won't you ki-me-O!

Ch: Kimo, Kimo, Keero ark!
Mehe, mehi, me humdrum penny winkle
Tip tap, pitty pat, brown eyed pussy cat
Sing a song Kitty, won't you ki-me-O!

They go to sleep, but it aint no use
Sing a song Kitty, won't you ki-me-O!
Their feet stick out for the chickens to roost
Sing a song Kitty, won't you ki-me-O!
