Little Seed

from Cranberry Sauce Flotilla

Little seed
By Woody Guthrie

Take my little hoe, dig a hole in the ground
Take my little seed, and I plant it down

(chorus)
Tooky, tooky, tooky
Tooky tidal oh
Tooky, tooky, tooky
Tooky tidal oh
We’ll all dance around
And watch my little seed grow

The rain it come and it washed my ground
I thought my little seed was going to drown
I waded and I splashed and I carried my seed
I planted it again on some higher ground

The sun got hot and my ground got dry
I thought my little seed would burn and die
I carried some water form a watering mill
I said “little seed, you can drink your fill”

(chorus)

the snow it blowed and the wind it blew
my little seed grew and it grew and it grew
it grew up a cradle all soft inside
and a baby was sleeping there covered with vines

(chorus
