Catholic Activity: Aunt Rhody

This is a classic American folk song, "A song that is completely American in origin" (Burl Ives).

DIRECTIONS

1. Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody that her old gray goose is dead.

2. The one that she's been a-savin', the one that she's been a-savin', the one that she's been a-savin' to make a feather bed.

3. She died in the mill-pond, she died in the mill-pond, she died in the mill-pond, standin' on her head.

4. The goslings are cryin', the goslings are cryin', the goslings are cryin', 'cause their mammy's dead.

5. Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody that her old gray goose is dead.
