Liza's Up the 'Simmon Tree

This song is by Grandpa Jones and appears on the album Sings Real Folk Songs (1964).

Liza up in a 'simmon tree
And a possum on the ground
Possum said you son of a gun
Shake them 'simmons down

Ol' folks down the mountain
Grindin sugar cane
Makin' barrels of molasses
To sweeten Miss Liza Jane

Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
Whoopty Liza Jane
Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
A'ridin' on that train

I went to see my Liza Jane
She's standin' by the door
Shoes and stockin's in her hand
And her feet all over the floor

Would not marry a poor girl
I'll tell you the reason why
Have so many poor kinfolk
Make my biscuits fly

Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
Whoopty Liza Jane
Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
A'ridin' on that train

Whiskey by the gallon
Sugar by the pound
A great big bowl to put it in
Miss Liza to stir it round

Cheeks is like the cherries
Cherries like a rose
How I like that pretty little girl
A'goodness gracious knows

Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
Whoopty Liza Jane
Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
A'ridin' on that train

Head is like a coffee pot
Nose is like a spout
Mouth is like an old fireplace
With the ashes all raked out

Cheeks is like a cherries
Cherries like a rose
How I like that pretty little girl
Goodness gracious knows

Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
Whoopty Liza Jane
Whoopty Liza pretty little gal
A'ridin' on that train
