Barefoot Nellie

print

Redheaded pecker sittin’ on a limb
Ma Chicken Nellie got a hen
Wrung his neck and plucked him clean
Funniest chicken you ever seen

   Hey Barefoot Nellie
   Ho Barefoot Nellie
   Hey Barefoot Nellie
   You’re the one for me.

Nellie went to town one day
Ridin’ on a load of hay
Sold a man a trip to Mars
And now she sits behind the bars.

Nell put on her Sunday dress
Most of it was lookin’ best
Made out of an old feed sack
Poppy wrote right on the back.
