Lyrics

The good man he came home one night The good man, home came he There he spied an old saddle horse Where no horse should there be It's a cow, it's a cow, cried the good man's wife A cow, just a cow, can't you see? Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But a saddle on a cow there's never been The good man he came home one night The good man, home came he There he spied a powdered wig Where no wig should there be It's a hen, it's a hen, cried the good man's wife A hen, just a hen, can't you see? Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But powder on a hen there's never been The good man he came home one night The good man, home came he There he spied a riding coat Where no coat should there be It's sheets, just sheets, cried the good man's wife Sheets, just sheets, can't you see? Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But buttons on a sheet there's never been The good man he came home one night When the good man home came he There he spied a handsome man Where no man should there be It's the maid, it's the maid,
cried the good man's wife The milking maid, can't you see? Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But a beard on a maid there's never been The good man he came home one night The good man, home came he There he spied an old saddle horse Where no horse should there be It's a cow, it's a cow, cried the good man's wife A cow, just a cow, can't you see? Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But a saddle on a cow there's never been Far have I ridden, and much I've seen But a saddle on a cow there's never been (Thanks to leah for these lyrics)
