Fed my horse in the poplar trough,
And the old cow died with the whooping cough.
The old cow died in the fork of the branch;
The buzzards had them a public dance.

(??: "And the part about the old . . . No, that's . . ."
Mr. Harrell: "I've heard all them when I was a kid, but I couldn't think of a one.")
