Lyrics I MET A 'POSSUM
IN THE ROAD;
HE MADE A VOW
TO ME.
HE CURLED HIS TAIL UP
OVER HIS BACK
AND HE SWORE
THIS ROAD WAS FREE.
HE SWORE
THIS ROAD WAS FREE.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.

I WENT TO SEE MY GAL
LAST NIGHT;
SHE MET ME AT THE GATE.
SHE THREW HER ARMS
AROUND MY NECK
AND I THOUGHT MY HEART
WOULD BREAK.
I THOUGHT MY HEART
WOULD BREAK.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.

I WENT TO SEE
MY GAL LAST NIGHT;
SHE WAS WASHIN'
AT THE TUB,
AND THE MORE I ASKED HER
TO MARRY ME,
THE HARDER SHE WOULD RUB.
THE HARDER SHE WOULD RUB.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.

'POSSUM UP A 'SIMMON TREE
AND A RACOON UP A HOLLER.
PRETTY LITTLE GAL
DOWN THE ROAD,
AS FAT AS SHE CAN WALLER.
FAT AS SHE CAN WALLER.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.

'POSSUM UP A 'SIMMON TREE
AND A RACCOON ON THE GROUND.
RACCOON SAID,
YOU SON-OF-A-GUN,
JUST SHAKE
THEM 'SIMMONS DOWN.
SHAKE
THEM 'SIMMONS DOWN.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.

'POSSUM BEGAN TO SHAKE A
ND THE 'SIMMONS BEGAN TO FALL.
RACCOON SAID,
YOU SON-OF-A-GUN,
YOU MUST THINK
I WANT TO FALL.
YOU MUST THINK
I WANT TO FALL.
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE,
DONE;
JENNIE, GET YOUR HOE CAKES DONE.
