Beyond the busy highway,
Beyond the city strife,
We highly treasure and take great pleasure
In our plain way of life.
Feudin' a fussin' and a-fightin,'
Sometimes it gets down right excitin,'
Don't like them ornery
neighbors down by the creek,
Well, we'll be plumb out of neighbors next week.
Grandma, poor ol' grandma,
Why'd they have to shoot poor grandma.
She lies 'neath the clover
Seems they caught her bendin' over
A reachin' for the money.
Feduin' a fussin' and a-fightin'
This is a wrong that needs a rightin,'
Let's get that funeral service over
So then we'll go feudin' and fightin' again.
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n.
We are such neighborly people peaceful and sweet,
All except when we happen to meet.
Daughter, baby daughter,
Poisened all the neighbors chickens.
Daughter shouldn't oughter
At least 'till she could run like the dickens.
They caught her at the cross-roads!
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin'
No use a-standin' here a-cussin,'
Let's give our daughter a
pistol now that she's four
And go feudin' and fightin' some more.
Ah, fightin' and a feudin' and a fussin'
What did that stranger want with usin ?
He was a revenu agent, yep he was until
The boys had to hide him in the still
Liquor, mountain liquor
It's better now, it kicks you much quicker
Moonshine, mountain moonshine
Has a glow that gets you much thicker
We serve it with a clothes bud
Feudin' a fussin' and a fightin'
This ain't no place to be polite in
A load up my double-barrel shotgun
I'm gettin the yen to go feudin' and a fussin'
A feudin' and a fightin'
A feudin' and a fussin'
