8-8 7  7   7 5   6    6   6
 As I was going down the road
 7  -8  8 8  8 -8  7 -8  8 -8  -8
with a tired team and a heavy load
8-8   7    7   7    5  -5   6  6    6
 I cracked my whip and the leader sprung
7-8 8    9   9  7  -8  8 -8    7
 I said goodbye to the wagon tongue

 8  9  9   8    9     9    9    9
Turkey in the straw, haw, haw, haw
-9 -10 -10 -9  -10  -10  -10  -10
Turkey  in the hay, hay, hay, hay
 10   10 10 10    9    9   9
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
9   8    8  7 -8
A high tuck-e-haw
7-8  8   9  9 -10  9 8  7 -8
And hit 'em up a  tune called
 8  7  -8 -7    7
Turkey In The Straw
