The Pig Song

(Short version in bold)
(Music: F W Bowers / Lyrics: Benjamin Hapgood Burt)

One evening last October, when I was far from sober
And dragging home a load with manly pride
My feet began to stutter and I fell down in the gutter
And a pig came up and parked right by my side

Then I mumbled, "It's fair weather when good comrades get together"
Till a lady passing by was heard to say,
"You can tell a man that boozes by the playmates that he chooses"
Then the pig got up and slowly walked away

I began to scratch the gravel, on my all fours I did travel
I rambled down the road the best I could
When I awoke next morning, just as the day was dawning
I was in a hog pen away out in the woods

Then the hogs began to grumble, I started and I stumbled
I fell right in their midst and there I lay
Then one by one they started, till all the herd departed
Yes, every hog got up and walked away

Now lately I've been thinking that I will quit my drinking
I'm going to leave off whiskey, beer and grog
For there's no consolation, but only aggravation
You can't even find friends with a hog

It was early last December, as near as I remember
I was walking down the street in tipsy pride
No one was I disturbing, as I lay down by the curbing
And a pig came up and lay down by my side

As I lay there in the gutter, thinking thoughts I cannot utter
A lady passing by was heard to say
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses"
And the pig got up and slowly walked away

One evening in October, when I was far from sober
To keep my feet from wandering I tried,
My poor legs were all a-flutter, so I lay down in the gutter
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.

We sang,"Never mind the weather just as long as we're together"
Till a lady passing by was heard to say,
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses"
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

Yes the pig got up and slowly walked away.
Slowly walked away, slowly walked away
Yes the pig got up and then smiled and winked at me
As he slowly walked away.

On cattle shows I've centered, in one a pig I entered
And one day I sat down with him in his sty
Famous people came to visit, when a sweet voice said, "What is it?"
She said "What a lofely fella", poked the pig with her umbrella
Then she looked at me a while and whispered, "Say
Yeah Ay tank dis iss hees brudder"---at my side I felt a shudder
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
