Lyrics (low part)
The old grey dog came trotting through the meeting house (3x) down in Alabama.
The old grey mare she ain't what she use to be (3x) down in Alabama.
The old grey mare took a kick at the whiffletree (3x) down in Alabama.
Lyrics (high part)
Brave boys here, brave boys there, brave boys here, down in Alabama.
Prey boys prey (3x) get down your knees and prey.
