The Rattlin' Bog

Traditional as performed by Golden Bough

Lyrics [pdf]

Oh, row, the Rattlin' Bog; the bog down in the valley.
Oh, row, the Rattlin' Bog; the bog down in the valley-o.
In that bog there was a hole, a rare hole and a rattlin' hole
the hole in the bog and the hole in the bog
and the bog down in the valley-o.

In that bog there was a tree...

On that tree there was a branch...

On that branch there was a bough...

On that bough there was a nest...

On that nest there was a bird...

On that bird there was a tail...

On that tail there was a feather...

On that feathre there was a flee...

On that flee there was a leg...

On that leg there was a hair...
