Grandpa Jones Dooley lyrics

Dooley was a good ole man

He lived below the mill

Dooley had two daughters

And a 40 gallon still


One gal watched the boiler

The other watched the spout

And Mama caught the bottles

When ole Dooley fetched them out


Dooley, slippin' up the holler

Dooley, tryin' to make a dollar

Dooley, give me a swaller

And I'll pay you back someday


The revenuers came for him

A slippin' through the woods

Dooley kept behind them all

And never lost his goods


Dooley was a trader

When into town he'd come

Sugar by the bushel

And molasses by the ton


I remember very well

The day ole Dooley died

The women folk looked sorry

And the men stood round and cried


Now Dooley's on the mountain

He lies there all alone

They put a jug beside him

And a barrel for his stone
