The poor old man lay down to rest
Way down in Tennessee
His bones they lie
Disturb them not
Way down in Tennessee.

The pee-or old mee-an lay dee-own to ree-est
Way dee-own in Tee-ennesee, see see
His bee-ones they lee-ie
Distee-urb them nee-ot
Way dee-own in Tee-ennessee, see see.

The pickety-or old mickety-an lay dickety-own to rickety-est
Way dickety-own in Tickety-ennessee, see see
His bickety-ones they lickety-ie
Distickey-urb them nickety-ot
Way dickety-own in Tickety-ennessee, see see.
