Information About Found a Peanut

Is widely considered to be one of the most popular campfire songs.

Is a considered a 'traditional' children's song in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Israel. However, in Israel, they call it 'Swallowed a Peanut' and some of the lyrics are different.

The origins of this song are not quite known but some believe that a man named Jack Schafer, who lived in Detroit, Michigan, wrote it in 1958. What's strange is that the song appeared in a movie called A Letter to Three Wives in 1949; nine years before Schafer supposedly wrote it!

The tune that "Found a Peanut" is sung to ("Oh My Darling, Clementine") is believed to have been written by a man named Percy Montrose way back in 1884! Although, some people believe a man named Barker Bradford really wrote it.

And, some people also believe that "Oh My Darling, Clementine" was based on an older song called "Down by the River Liv'd a Maiden", which was written in 1863!

Additional Lyrics That You Can Add Starting From "Went To The Doctor"

Doc was golfing
Then I died
Went to heaven
It was locked
Broke in anyway
Got kicked out
Went the other place
It was hot
So I whined a lot
They got tired of me
Sent me back
I'm alive again
Now I'm hungry.

A version sent by bussongs. com visitor

Called the doctor,
Said I wouldn't die
Died anyway
Went to heaven
Played a harp
Broke a string
Said a bad word
Went below
Shoveling coal
Found a peanut.
