Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hambone! Hambone!
Verse 2
Hambone, hambone
Where you been?
Round the world and I'm going again
What you gonna do when you come back?
Take a little walk by the railroad track
Hambone
Verse 3
Hambone, hambone
Have you heard?
Papa's gonna buy me a mocking bird
And if that mocking bird don't sing
Papa's gonna buy me a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring don't shine
Papa's gonna take it to the five and dime
Hambone
Verse 4
Hambone, hambone
Where you been?
Round the world and I'm going again
I just skinned an alley cat
To make my wife a Sunday hat
Took the hide right off a goat
To make my wife a Sunday coat
Verse 5
Hambone, hambone
Where's your wife
Out to the kitchen, cooking beans and rice
Hambone
Hambone
Verse 6
Hambone, hambone
Trying to eat
Ketchup on his elbow, pickle on his feet
Bread in the basket
Chicken in the stew
Supper on the fire for me and you
Verse 7
Look at him holler, look at him moan
That hambone just can't hambone
Hambone
Hambone
