Froggie Went A - Courtin
Traditional Folk Song,  Author - Unknown

Ever time I see this song, the words are different, but here�s one version.

D
Froggie went a - courtin and he did ride, a - huh.
D				A7
Froggie went a - courtin and he did ride, a - huh.
D
Froggie went a - courtin and he did ride, 
G			D	A7	D
Sword and pistol by his side, a -huh, a - huh, fare the well.

(Same format)
Well he rode down to Miss Mouse�s door
Where he had often been before

He took Miss Mousie on his knee
Said �Miss Mousie will you marry me�

I�ll have to ask my Uncle Rat
See what he will say to that

Well, Uncle Rat laughed and shook his fat sides
To think his niece would be a bride

Well, Uncle Rat rode off to town
To buy his niece a wedding gown

Where will the wedding supper be
Way down yonder in a hollow tree

What will the wedding supper be
A fried misquito and a roasted flea

First to come in were to little ants
Fixing around to have a dance

Next to come in was a bumble bee
Bouncing a fiddle on his knee

Next to come in was a fat sassy lad
Thinks himself as big as his dad

Thinks himself a man indeed
Because he chews the tobacco weed

And next to come in was a big  tomcat
He swallowed the frog and the mouse and the rat
And that was the end of that a-huh.
