Woody Guthrie Cumberland Gap Lyrics

[Chorus]
Cumberland Gap, Cumberland Gap
Seventeen miles from the Cumberland Gap
Cumberland Gap, Cumberland Gap
Seventeen miles from the Cumberland Gap

Lay down boys take a little nap,
Seventeen miles from the Cumberland Gap
Lay down boys and take a little nap,
Seventeen miles from the Cumberland Gap

[Chorus]

Cumberland Gap, it ain't nowhere
Thirteen miles from Middlesburg
Cumberland Gap, it ain't nowhere
Thirteen miles from Middlesburg

[Chorus]

Play it pretty, Sonny
Hey, hey, ho-ho-ho
Play it again
Mighty pretty

As I was a'going down the road
I met that terrapin and I met that toad
Then that time the terrapin sing
Oh, don't touch that pigeon wing

[Chorus: x2]
