Camptown Races


De Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da
De Camptown racetrack's two miles long
Oh, de doo-da day.

G'wine to run all night
G'wine to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray.

Oh, de long tailed filly and de big black horse,
Doo-da, Doo-da
Come to a mud hole and dey all cut across,
Oh, de doo-da day.


I went down South with my hat caved in,
Doo-da, Doo-da
I came back North with a pocket full of tin.
Oh, de doo-da day.
