Go Waggaloo
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Sarah Lee Guthrie

Chorus:

Ha ha go waggy waggy / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Ha ha go waggy waggy / Hee, hee, go waggaloo

In this world of spiratulation / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I was born by quick decision / Hee, hee, go waggaloo
My mother was of doublin' troubles / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Daddy cooked in sudsy bubbles / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

I was a child of normal battles / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Fought with rocks and sticks and rattles / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I took down with the chills and fevers / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I felt bad as gypsum weeders / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

Chorus

Mama died of natural causes / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Papa died of money losses / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
My brothers and my sisters scattered / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I grew up in raggy tatters / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

Every state and every city / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I tried to pay them all a visit / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I danced and sung to earn my eats / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Slept in car seats on the streets / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

I lived in camp with timber droppers / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Lived in shacks of worried croppers / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
The winter froze me on the roads / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Froze my ears, my legs, my nose / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

Chorus

I went down to Mexico country / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I seen the big high trees in Canada / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I took down with the desert sunstroke / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I had money 'til I went broke / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

Every bad thing come and hit me / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
Snakes they struck me, dogs they bit me / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I ain't down yet, I'm still walkin' / Hey, hey, go waggaloo
I keep askin', I keep talkin' / Hey, hey, go waggaloo

Chorus
