about

Adapted by Red Yarn from the traditional African-American folksong, as published in Peter Blood’s & Annie Patterson’s 'Rise Up Singing' (1988).

lyrics

You get a line, I'll get a pole, honey
You get a line, I'll get a pole, babe
You get a line, I'll get a pole,
We'll go down to the crawdad hole
Honey, sugar baby mine

Get up, sweetheart, you slept too late, honey
Get up, sweetheart, you slept too late, babe
Get up, sweetheart, we slept too late
Crawdad man's done passed our gate
Honey, sugar baby mine

What you gonna do when the lake runs dry, honey?
What you gonna do when the lake runs dry, babe?
What you gonna do when our lake runs dry?
Sit on the bank and watch the crawdads die
Honey, sugar baby mine

What you gonna do when the crawdads die, honey?
What you gonna do when the crawdads die, babe?
What you gonna do when our crawdads die?
Sit on the bank and cry, cry, cry
Honey, sugar baby mine

You get a line, I'll get a pole, honey…
