Peg Leg Jack Recorded Tex Morton Written by Carson Robinson
C F Ol' Peg Leg Jack went out one night to get a little gin C G7 C He went down to the landlord's house the landlord wasn't in F He rapped he rapped he rapped he rapped he rapped all night in vain C G7 C When all of a sudden a (3 knocks) come on the windowpane
F Up to the window he turned his head and there a maid he spied C G7 C He thought by the way that she (3 knocks) that she would be his bride F Come down come down said Peg Leg Jack and sit on the porch with me C G7 C And down she come and she sat on the porch as pretty as ever you see
G7 C Oh they billed they cooed they kissed and they loved D7 G7 They honeyed and they sweetied and they turtle doved C F They babied and they honeyed and lovied my pets C G7 C They kissed and cuddled and there they sat
F Then of a sudden here come her father a-drivin' the village hack C With a roar and a bellow and hey young fellow G7 C He started for Peg Leg Jack F Jack lit out with a yip and a shout for life to him was sweet C G7 C And his old peg leg went (3 knocks) upon the village street
F Goodbye my lover the maiden cried I hope you don't get killed C G7 C The old man grabbed his pistol out with powder and bullets felled F Jack bumped into a big fat lady and fell in a puddle kersplash C G7 C The old man's pistol went (3 knocks) as down the road they dashed
G7 C Oh they raced they chased they hollered and bowled D7 G7 Yelled and they snarled and they hollered and crowed C F They raced and they chased and they dodged up and down C G7 C Back and forward and round and round
F Jack climbed up into a tree and thought he'd saved his skin C But the woodpeckers pecked on his old peg leg G7 C And they drove him down again F He ran into a neighbor's barn the old man followed him in C G7 C A mule got sore and whaled away and kicked him out again
F Jack he ran kersmack into the village constable C Who joined in the chase with the girl's old man G7 C The fat lady and the mule F They chased the sailor around and round and round a big haystack C G7 C The old man ran round the other way and he grabbed poor sailor Jack
G7 C Oh they wrestled and tasseled and their eyes got black D7 G7 Jack hit her pappy and the pappy hit back C F They cheated and they tumbled and they cursed and they swore C G7 C They barked their knuckles and their clothes they tore
F The old mule cried the fat lady screamed the constable let out a yell C G7 C He grabbed the old man by the collar and locked him in a cell F Peg Leg Jack he hurried back the maiden for to wed C G7 C But found that she had gone and run off with a soldier boy instead
G7 C Oh poor Jack cried he hollered and he swore D7 G7 He grabbed him a ship and he sailed from shore C F Sailed away just as fast as sin C G7 C And that was the last that they seen of him
