MUSKRAT
(Merle Travis - Tex Ann - Harold Hensley)
EVERLY BROTHERS (WARNER BROS 5501, 1961)

Muskrat, muskrat, what makes your back so slick?
I've been livin' in the water all my life
It's a wonder I ain't sick, I ain't sick, I ain't sick

Groundhog, groundhog, what makes your back so round?
I've been livin' in the ground all my life
It's a wonder I'm around, I'm around, I'm around

Jaybird, jaybird, what makes you fly so high?
I've been eating these acorns all my life
It's a wonder I don't die, I don't die, I don't die

Rooster, rooster, what makes your bark so hard?
I've been scratchin' in the barnyard all my life
There's no wonder I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired

Tomcat, tomcat, what makes your tail so long?
I've been prowlin' around all my life
It's a wonder I ain't gone, I ain't gone, I ain't gone
