The Deer

They were a-hunting
In the woods
A father and a son
I have heard that hunting
Is a whole lot of fun

Soon son shot a small deer
And tagged it with his label
Dad said, "Why son,
Ain't you ashamed-
For the robbin' of a cradle?"

Then Dad shot a big ole buck
Gray minglin' in its hair
Said son,
"I saw that buck a-sailin'
Down that hill
In his wheelchair!"

So they're still debatin'
Over whose was the best deer yet
An' I'm sittin' here chucklin'
While I'm eatin' it...
