    Lyrics

    When I was young, I used to wait
    On the boss and give him his plate
    And pass him the bottle when he got dry
    And brush away the blue tail fly

    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    My master's gone away

    And When he would ride in the afternoon
    I'd follow after, with a hickory broom
    The pony being rather shy
    When bitten by blue tail fly

    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    My master's gone away

    One day, he ride around the farm
    The flies so numerous, they did swarm
    One chanced to bite him on the thigh
    The devil take the blue tail fly

    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    My master's gone away

    The pony run, he jumped, he pitch
    He threw my master in the ditch
    He died and the jury wondered why
    The verdict was the blue tail fly

    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    My master's gone away

    They lay him under a 'simmon tree
    His epitaph is there to see
    "Beneath this stone, I'm forced to lie
    Victim of the blue tail fly"

    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    Jimmy, crack corn and I don't care
    My master's gone away
