With the little brown jug under my arm,
I picked her up, and I give her a pull.
When I get through, the jug’s half full.
Chorus: Oh, ho, ho, you and me,
Little brown jug, do I love thee!
Me and my wife and the old coon dog
Crossed the creek on a hickory log.
The log, it broke, and we got wet,
All but the old coon dog, you bet.
Picked her up, and I give her a pull;
When I got through, the jug’s half full.
