Bruce Springsteen Old Dan Tucker Lyrics

Last updated: 12/22/2013 06:23:04 AM

Now Old Dan Tuker was a fine old man
Washed his face in a fryin' pan
Combed his hair with a wagon wheel
And died with a toothache in his heal

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
Your're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper

Now Old Dan Tucker come to town
Ridin' a billy goat, leadin' a hound
The hound dog barked and billy goat jumped
And landed old Tucker on a stump

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper

Now Old Dan Tucker got drunk and fell
In the fire and kicked up holy hell
A red-hot coal got in his shoe
An oh my Lord the ashes flew

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper

Now Old Dan Tucker come to town
Swinging them ladies all round
First to the right and then to the left
Then to the gal that he loved best

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper

Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper
Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
You're too late to get your supper

Slight variation | Reviewer: Clarke | 12/22/13

To my memory, these lyrics are nearly perfect, except for the chorus. When my teacher taught my class, the chorus I learned went:
"get out the way of old Dan Tucker! He's too late to get his supper. Suppers over and breakfast cookin, old Dan Tucker just stands there lookin"

Whether that's correct or not I don't know, but that's how I learned it as a kid back in the early 90's lol.

Awesome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/9/13

Its a good song! I had known it before cause we learnt it at school and I had forgotten how it went so I searched it in google and I have been looking for the correct version for ages.
