Mysterious Fox Of Fox Hollow

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

The mysterious fox of Fox Hollow
He doesn't have many friends
He hides in the forest behind a big rock
He sniffs with his nose in the wind

And you'll never see him there's no need to look
He'll hide in the grass or he'll hide in the bush
Sometimes he will run and jump over the log
For he is afraid of your dog
Uh huh

The mysterious fox of Fox Hollow
He plays with a foxy old bunch
He comes out at night to steal chickens
And someday he might eat your lunch

You'll never see him there's no need to look...

The mysterious fox of Fox Hollow
You ask me how I know
Though I never have seen him one day on the barn
I saw his tracks in the snow
Four of them

And you'll never see him there's no need to look...

Sneaky Snake

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

Boys and girls take warning if you go near the lake
Keep your eyes wide open and look for sneaky snake
Now maybe you won't see him and maybe you won't hear
But he'll sneak up behind you and drink all of your root beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancing wiggling and hissing
Sneaky snake goes dancing giggling and kissing
I don't like ole sneaky snake he laughs too much you see
When he goes wiggling through the grass it tickles his underneath

Well sneaky snake drinks root beer and he just makes me sick
When he is not dancing he looks just like a stick
Now he doesn't have any arms or legs you cannot see his ears
And while we are not looking he's stealing all of our beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancing wiggling and hissing...

How To Talk To A Little Baby Goat

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

How do you talk to a little baby goat
You can't go meow like a cat
When you go meow to a little baby goat
He can't go meow right back

No you have to say baaa to a little baby goat
You can't say hello like a man
You have to say baaa to a little baby goat
That's all he understands

How do you talk to a little baby goat
You can't go cackle like a hen
When you go cackle to a little baby goat
It doesn't mean a thing to him

So you have to say baaa to a little baby goat...

How do you talk to a little baby goat
You can't go quack like a duck
When you go quack to a little baby goat
It just doesn't mean very much

So you can't go meow cackle quack to a goat
You can't say hello like a man
You can't go meow cackle quack to a goat
Remember you have to say baaa

Barn Dance

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

One night as I was sleepin' somethin' awakened me
There was a light on in my barn so I went down to see
I peeked through the big ole crack in the door and what do you think I saw
The animals havin' a barn dance right in the horse's stall

And there was chicken doin' chicken reel and the muskart rambled on
The ol' cow did a cow-cow boogie and the rooster crowed the song
A mouse came out of his hidin' place and he danced on one leg
The ol' hen got so tickled that she almost laid an egg
[ banjo - guitar ]
They were all dressed up for the barn dance it made me want to laugh
The rabbit wore the big bowtie and the pig was a lookin' in the lookin' glass
And the goose danced with the gander till an old dog boddied in
The horse was horsin' around a lot till the mare got mad at him

And there was chicken doin' chicken reel and the muskart rambled on...
And there was chicken doin' chicken reel and the muskart rambled on...

I Care

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

And you have a sad feelin' deep in your heart
You wanna go out but it's rainin' out there
I want you to know I care

I care I do there's no one like you
When they take you some place and you sit in a chair
I want you to know I care

When you tell a big lie and your parents are mean
When being grownup is a faraway dream
When you're fillin' your teeth and cuttin' your hair
I want you to know I care

I care I do there's no one like you
I mention your name when I'm sayin' my prayers
I want you to know I care

When you have a bad cough and you can't go out
When you sit for a week with that thing in your mouth
When you sleep in the dark and there's somethin' out there
I want you to know I care

I care I do there's no one like you
And sometimes I act like a grouchy ol' bear
I want you to know I care
I love you too much

Ole Lonesome George The Basset

Dixie Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

Ole lonesome George the basset lived in Brentwood Tennessee
And even though he had his faults he was a sight to see
He taught the show dog puppies to always try and please
To hold their heads and tails up and not wet the judge's knees

Ole George was not a champion but his owners loved him so
They drived the car to the dogshows ole George would get the dough
But when he'd get out in the rain he never could win first
Several judges shook their heads and said he was the worst

Then one day the kannel keeper got an urgent call
From the local TV to Mr Tom T Hall
They said Johnny Cash is puttin' on the show tonight
He says he needs a basset you've got one ain't that right

Lonesome George went to the show and he did everything
He barked and growled and jumped around and made the rappers ring
He'd left the people cheering for another curtain call
And so ole lonesome George became the show dog after all mhm

I Wish I Had A Million Friends

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

I wish I had a million friends
And the playground as big as the world
I wish I had a million friends
Some kittens some boys and some girls
I wish I had a million friends
Some people some puppies and cats
Some chickens some mouse and the bird
And maybe I'd like to have a big friendly rat yeah

I wish I had a million friends

And the sandbox as big as the school
I wish I had a million friends
And the frog that goes ribbit in the pool
I wish I had a million friends
I'd like to have all different sorts
One for the morning and the noon and the night
A monkey and a zebra and a big white horse oh boy

I wish I had a million friends
Who would listen and talk to me too
I wish I had a million friends
The whole wide world and the whole big Zoo
I wish I had a million friends
Who were thoughtful kind and true
I wish I had a million friends
And I wish they were all like you

Everybody Loves To Hear A Bird Sing

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

Sometimes birds don't have enough to eat
There's not enough food in the fields or the streets
There are too many cities where there used to be trees
So it's left up to you and me

Everybody loves to hear a bird sing (whistle)
The prettiest music you have ever heard
Here's how to make friends with the bird

First you get some peanut butter out of a jar
And you can buy a bag of bird seed anywhere
You mix it all together and you put it on the ground
And pretty soon the birds come around

Everybody loves to hear a bird sing (whistle)...

Some people buy spray and they spray it on the land
They kill all the little bitty bugs that they can
The birds eat up the bugs and it makes them sick
I wish we didn't have to do that

Cause everybody loves to hear a bird sing (whistle)...

Right now you're young and you're not very tall
You're really very busy and you're rally very small
Someday when you're older and things go wrong
You've gotta need a pretty bird song

Because everybody loves to hear a bird sing (whistle)...

I Like To Feel Pretty Inside

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

A mink wears a mink coat the whole year around
Even when he is not going to town
A skunk has a striped coat it's pretty he thinks
Although we all know he stinks

An elephant has hide as hard as a rock
A zebra has stripes and a leopard has spots
Sometimes I'm sad when I look at my hide
But I'd rather feel pretty inside

I like to feel pretty inside don't you
I like being kind and I like being true
I like to like me when I close my eyes
I like to feel pretty inside
Oh I like to feel pretty inside
[ banjo ]
If a mink wore a (..?..) coat the whole year around
If he had to wear it when he went to town
If a skunk had a red coat and smell like a rose
Do you think he'd turn up his nose

If elephants have fur as likely as not
A leopard would have stripes and a zebra have spots
I guess it would be great to have a new hide
But I'd rather feel pretty inside

I like to feel pretty inside don't you...
I like to feel pretty inside don't you...

Song Of The One Legged Chicken

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

Do you like true stories I do
That's why I'm singin' this song
A song about one legged chicken
Who lives in the straw on the floor in my barn

I remember the day she was hatched out
The vet came to see her and said
She has only one leg she'll never grow up
He said that chick would be better off dead

I said no let's just let her keep growing
We'll just wait and see how she gets
Before very long she was hoppin'
And peckin' and chasin' the bugs with the rest

And now she is a beautiful chicken
Though she has only one leg
When I go to see her each morning
She hops from the nest and she leaves me an egg
And she cackles

Do you like true stories I do
That's why I've sung you this song
The song about the one legged chicken
Who lives on the floor in my barn

I Love

Tom T. Hall

© Hallnote Music, BMI

I love little baby ducks old pickup trucks
Slow moving trains and rain
I love little country streams sleep without dreams
Sunday school in May and hay
And I love you too

I love leaves in the wind pictures of my friends
Birds of the world and squirrels
I love coffee in a cup little fuzzy pupps
Old TV shows and snow
And I love you too

I love honest open smiles kisses from a child
Tomatos on the vine and onions
I love winners when they cry losers when they try
Nusic when it's good and life
And I love you too
