There Was A Woman All Skin And Bone


There was a woman all skin and bone
Who lived in a cottage all on her own,

She thought she'd go to church one day
To hear the parson preach and pray,

When she got to the wooden stile
She thought she'd stay and rest a while

When she reached the old church door
A ghastly ghost lay on the floor,

The grubs crawled in, the grubs crawled out,
Of its ears, eyes, nose, and mouth.

Oh you ghastly ghost, she said,
Shall I be like you when I am dead ?

Hi guys, I thought I would share with my 9 yr old, a song from my youth. I went to YouTube to see if I could find the music to go with it , and discovered that the lyrics posted here are quite different from the song. Is it okay to ask if you guys have the original lyrics to the song? Or is this simply another rendition of the original? Thanking you in advance for the reply back

Yes Michelle, That is the version I remember. It scared me so bad it was about in 5th grade when I learned it too that I still get cold chills when I sing it.

We did this song in 5th grade which was a long time ago. So I don't know who wrote it, but the version we sang was pretty different. There was an old woman all skin and bones Oo oo ooo She lived down by the old graveyard Oo oo ooo One night she thought she'd take a walk Oo oo ooo She saw the bones a-lying around Oo oo ooo She went to the closet to get a broom Oo oo ooo She opened the door and ... BOOO
