Watermelon

Camp

You can talk about your apples, your peaches and your pears,
Your persimmons hanging on the persimmon tree (on the tree)
But give me, oh give me, I really wish you would
That watermelon hanging on the vine.

{Chorus}: Ham bone is sweet (click), Chicken is good (yum)
Possum meat is mighty, mighty fine, (ain’t it so-No!)
Oh give me, just give me, I really wish you would
That watermelon hanging on the vine.

Oh when I went to fetch it was on a rainy night
The moon had not yet begun to shine (begun to shine)
But when that farmer saw me, He shot me through the fence
I never got that melon off the vine. {Chorus}
