Jack Branger

Cat. #0364 (MFH #324) - As sung by Harrison Burnett, Fayettville, Arkansas on June 15, 1959

VERSE 1
My name it is Jack Branger
You'd better write it down
It's already going
Th fastest man in town
I'm good upon a banjo
I'm better on a drunk
I've been to see th elephant
And overhauled his trunk

VERSE 2
I have a fancy buggy
Likewise, a noble horse
His name is Roaring Thunder
His harness fits him neat
You bet he makes th buggy hum
When Jack Branger hits th seat

VERSE 3
As I was going up Broadway
I chanced to meet a girl
She was a handsome figure
Her hair inclined to curl
I asked her, if she'd marry
She answered with a frown,
I would not like to marry
Th fastest man in town
