    Lyrics

    Oh, the people would come from far away
    Dance all night till the break of day
    When the caller hollered do-se-do
    We knew Uncle Pen was ready to go

    Late in the evening 'bout sundown
    High on the hill and above the town
    Uncle Pen played the fiddle and, oh, how it would ring
    You could hear it talk, you could hear it sing

    He played an old tune called 'Soldier's Joy'
    And the one they called 'Boston Boy'
    And the greatest of all was 'Jenny Lind'
    To me that's where the fiddlin' began

    Late in the evening 'bout sundown
    High on the hill and above the town
    Uncle Pen played the fiddle and, oh, how it would ring
    You could hear it talk, you could hear it sing

    I'll never forget that mournful day
    When Uncle Pen was called away
    Hang up his fiddle, they hang up his bow
    They know it was time for him to go

    Late in the evening 'bout sundown
    High on the hill and above the town
    Uncle Pen played the fiddle and, oh, how it would ring
    You could hear it talk, you could hear it sing
