"Fed My Horse"

       
  1. Fed my horse in a poplar trough,
Fed my horse in a poplar trough,
Fed my horse in a poplar trough,
Then she caught the whooping cough.
 
    Chorus:  
    Coy malindo
Killko, killko:
Coy malindo
Killko me.
 
 
2.
Fed my horse in a silver spoon,
Fed my horse in a silver spoon,
Fed my horse in a silver spoon,
And then he kicked it over the moon.
 
    Chorus  
  3. My old horse is dead and gone,
My old horse is dead and gone,
My old horse is dead and gone,
But he left his jawbones plowing the corn.
 
    Chorus
