Wake Up, Jacob
 
 

Far away on yonder hill old Blue's a barking
At a coon I guess he's chased all night
And it's just about two hours before the dawning
And Jacob's cabin doesn't show a light

Then the ruffle of the leaves beside my pathway
A small animal appeared black and white
And as I run for life towards Jacob's cabin
The polecat right behind me smelling up the countryside

I hollered wake up Jacob, stir up a light
Did you ever see a man and a polecat fight?
Turn on the light and let me in
Wake up Jacob let me in!

Well the polecat looked at me with his tail held high
As frantically I beat on Jacob's door
Then what a welcome sound to my nervous ears
As I heard Jacob's big feet hit the floor

As I waited there for Jacob to unlock the door
The polecat's perfume filled the morning air
And the odor was so strong that my eyes burned
And as the smell began to curl my hair

I hollered wake up Jacob, stir up a light
Did you ever see a man and a polecat fight?
Turn on the light and let me in
Wake up Jacob let me in!

Wake up Jacob, stir up a light
Did you ever see a man and a polecat fight?
Turn on the light and let me in
Wake up Jacob let me in!

Wake up Jacob, stir up a light
Did you ever see a man and a polecat fight?
Turn on the light and let me in
Wake up Jacob let me in!
