Hog Sloppin' Time In The Hollow

Music by Chuck Tucker & His Texas Caravan (1952)

Lyrics by Chuck Tucker, Chuck Mayfield, & J. Byrd Fuddly

VERSE ONE

I'd like to take you ridin' in my wagon, When the moon and stars come out to shine / But ol' Crawfish hung his hind leg in a bear trap / So I guess we'll go a-walkin' in the pines


CHORUS ONE

When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler, Well it always reminds me of you / When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler / Well I'll come out a-hollerin' for you


VERSE TWO

I recollect when I first come to see ya, We snuck up to your pappy's liquor still / We had a mess of turnip greens and cornbread / And then we chocked some rosin by the well.


CHORUS TWO

Well, it's hog sloppin' time in the holler, And it always reminds me of you / When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler / I'll come out a hollerin' for you


VERSE THREE

Next sunday if you ain't a-doin' nothin', How 'bout you meet me by the sour apple tree / I will be a-courtin' you, my darlin / And then I'll let you be a-courtin' me


CHORUS THREE

When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler, Well it always reminds me of you / When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler / I'll come out a-hollerin' for you


VERSE FOUR

Well, killin' weather's over and it's springtime, The rattlesnakes are sneakin' in the slough / The possums and the polecats are a-prowlin' / So won't you be a-prowlin' with me too


CHORUS FOUR

Cause it's hog sloppin' time in the holler, And it always reminds me of you / When it's hog sloppin' time in the holler / I'll come out a-hollerin' for you


I'll come out a-hollerin' for you
