K:D When [D]I was young I [A7]used to wait On [A7]master handing [D]him his plate, And [D]pass the bottle when [G]he got dry, And [A7]Brush a-way the [D]blue tail fly. {i}Chorus:{/i} {i}[D]Jimmy crack corn, and [A7]I don't care,{/i} {i}[A7]Jimmy crack corn, and [D]I don't care,{/i} {i}[D]Jimmy crack corn, and [G]I don't care,{/i} {i}My [A7]master's gone a-[D]way.{/i} And [D]when he'd ride in the [A7]after-noon, I'd [A7]follow after with a [D]hickory broom. The [D]pony kicked his [G]legs up high, When [A7]bitten by the [D]blue tail fly. {i}Chorus{/i} The [D]pony ran, he [A7]jumped, he pitched, He [A7]threw my master [D]in the ditch. My [D]master died and [G]who'll de-ny, The [A7]blame was on the [D]blue tail fly. {i}Chorus{/i} They [D]laid him under a [A7]'simmon tree, [A7]His epi-taph is [D]there to see; "Be-[D]neath this stone I'm [G]forced to lie - A [A7]victim of the [D]blue tail fly." {i}Chorus{/i} A [D]skeeter bites right [A7]through your clothes, A [A7]hornet strikes you [D]on the nose, The [D]bees may get you [G]passing by, But [A7]oh much worse, the [D]blue tail fly. {i}Chorus{/i}
