Rabbit in the Log Lyrics

(Not everyone sings this song the same way. Here is one version of the lyrics:)

There’s a rabbit in the log and I ain’t got my dog
How will I get him I know ( I know )
I’ll get me a briar and I’ll twist it in his hair
That’s how I’ll get him I know
I know I know
That’s how I’ll get him I know
I’ll get me a briar and I’ll twist it in his hair
That’s how I’ll get him I know

I’ll build me a fire and I’ll roast that old hare
Roll him in the flames to make him brown
And I’ll feast here tonight while the moon’s shining bright
Find me a place to lie down
To lie down, to lie down
Find me a place to lie down
I’ll feast here tonight while the moon’s shining bright
Just find me a place to lie down

I’m going down the track with a chicken on my back
The soles on my shoes nearly gone
Just a little ways ahead there’s an old farmer’s shed
That’s where I’ll rest my weary bones
Weary bones, weary bones
That’s where I’ll rest my weary bones
Just a little ways ahead there’s an old farmer’s shed
That’s where I’ll rest my weary bones
