Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: Lyr Add: BIG-EYED RABBIT
Don't forget Big Eyed Rabbit:

1. Yonder comes a rabbit, skipping through the sand
Shoot that rabbit, he don't mind
Fry him in my pan, Lord I'll fry him in my pan

Chorus 1. Big-eyed rabbit's gone, gone, the big-eyed rabbit's gone

2. Yonder comes a rabbit, fast as he can run
If I see another one
Gonna shoot him with my gun, shoot him my gun

Chorus 1 ...

3. Yonder comes my darling, how do I know?
I know her by her big brown eyes
Shining bright like gold, shining bright like gold

Chorus 2 . Rocking in a weary land, I'm rocking in a weary land.

Probably some another verses I dont recall in there - lots of versions of this - Tommy Jarrell recorded it a couple of times
