I Won´t Go Hunting With you Jake

Song Author Stuart Hamblen Performer: Jimmy Dean Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Oh it's springtime in the mountains
And I'm full of mountain [G7]dew   

Can't even read my catalog
Like I used to [C]do  

I'm a-setting in that little shed
That's right [C7]back of the [F]house
Here's [G7]comes old Jake with all the hounds
But he's gonna hear me [C]shout

[C]Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [G7]women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly [C]grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My [C7]life is just be[F]ginning
I [G7]won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [C]women


Let's go down to the meeting house
And wait till they start [G7]home   

Them gals that live on Possum Creek
We'll always leave [C]alone

We'll run them down the corn rows
Them [C7]sassy little [F]misses
We'll [G7]scare them pretty gals to death
We'll stop and throw 'em [C]kisses

[C]Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [G7]women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly [C]grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My [C7]life is just be[F]ginning
I [G7]won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [C]women


Now go wash your face and comb your hair
'Cause it's darn near time to [G7]start

But let me tell you 'fore you go
There's one that's got my [C]heart

Don't chase that gal with the yeller hair
And [C7]wears a dress of [F]green
For [G7]that little gal belongs to me
I know she's past [C]sixteen

[C]Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [G7]women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly [C]grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My [C7]life is just be[F]ginning
I [G7]won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [C]women


Now I was headed for the general store
When a silly thing I [G7]seen   

They make 'em in the city
It's called a [C]magazine

I turned to page thirty-two
And [C7]look at what I [F]found
Them [G7]gals wear clothes that we ain't seen
Beneath them gingham [C]gowns

[C]Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [G7]women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly [C]grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My [C7]life is just be[F]ginning
I [G7]won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing [C]women


Oh it's springtime in the mountains
And I'm full of mountain dew

Can't even read my catalog
Like I used to do

I'm a-setting in that little shed
That's right back of the house
Here's comes old Jake with all the hounds
But he's gonna hear me shout

Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My life is just beginning
I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

Let's go down to the meeting house
And wait till they start home

Them gals that live on Possum Creek
We'll always leave alone

We'll run them down the corn rows
Them sassy little misses
We'll scare them pretty gals to death
We'll stop and throw 'em kisses

Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My life is just beginning
I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

Now go wash your face and comb your hair
'Cause it's darn near time to start

But let me tell you 'fore you go
There's one that's got my heart

Don't chase that gal with the yeller hair
And wears a dress of green
For that little gal belongs to me
I know she's past sixteen

Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My life is just beginning
I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

Now I was headed for the general store
When a silly thing I seen

They make 'em in the city
It's called a magazine

I turned to page thirty-two
And look at what I found
Them gals wear clothes that we ain't seen
Beneath them gingham gowns

Oh I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women

So put them hounds back in the pens
And quit your silly grinning

Well the moon is bright and I'm half tight
My life is just beginning
I won't go hunting with you Jake
But I'll go chasing women
