Snow Hank – Squid Jiggin Ground chords
Words & Music by Arthur R. Scammell Recorded by Hank SnowC Oh this is the place where the fishermen gatherF C A7 G7 In oil-skins and boots and the Cape hats batten down;C F G7 CAll sizes of figures with squid lines and jiggers,C G7 CThey congregate here on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CSome are workin' their jiggers, while others are yarnin',F C A7 G7 There's some standin' up and there's more lyin' down;C F G7 C While all kinds of fun, jokes and drinks are begun,C G7 CAs they wait for the squid on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CThere's men of all ages and boys in the bargain,F C A7 G7 There's old Billy Cave and there's young Raymond Brown;C F G7 CThere's Rip, Red and Gory out here in the dory,C G7 C A runnin' down squires on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CThere's men from the harbor, there's men from the tickle,F C A7 G7 And all kinds of motor-boats, green, gray and brown;C F G7 CRight yonder is Bobby and with him is Nobby,C G7 CHe's chawin' hard tack on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CGod bless my soul, list to, there's Skipper John Champy,F C A7 G7 He's the best hand at squid jiggin' here, I'll be bound;C F G7 CHello, what's the row? Why he's jiggin' one now,C G7 CThe very first squid on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CThe man with the whiskers is old Jacob Steele,F C A7 G7 He's gettin' well on, but he's still pretty sound;C F G7 CWhile Uncle Bob Hockins wears six pairs of stockin'sC G7 CWhenever he's out on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CHoly Smoke! What a scuffle! All hands are excited,F C A7 G7 It's a wonder to me that there's nobody drowned;C F G7 CThere's a bustle, confusion, the wonderful hustle,C G7 CThey're all jiggin' squid on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CSays Barney, "The squids are on top of the water,F C A7 G7 I just felt me jiggers jig five fat homs downC F G7 CBut a squid in the boat squirted right down his throat,C G7 CNow he's swearin'like mad on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CThere's poor Uncle Louie, his whiskers are spatteredF C A7 G7 With spots of the squid juice that's flyin' around;C F G7 COne poor little guy got it right in the eye,C G7 CBut they don't give a darn on the Squid Jiggin' Ground.CNow, if you feel inclined to go squiddin',F C A7 G7 Leave your white shirt and your collar in the town;C F G7 CAnd if you get cranky without your silk hanky,C G7 CYou'd better steer clear of the Squid Jiggin' Ground.
