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.
Lyrics by Bruce Springsteen? | Reviewer: A. C. Jones | 5/17/13
I don't see it on this page, but the search results containted the phrase:"Lyrics by Bruce Springsteen".
He might have sung it, but could not have written it unless he is about 300 years old.
