Short, but great song by one of my favorite folk singers. I have heard other versions of this song although none like this one. Subscribe for other videos. Enjoy!

My Top 10 Folk Musicians from the 60's & 70's:

I was born 100,000 years ago
And there's nothin' in this world I do not know
Why the flag started flying
When George Washington stopped lying
I can lick the man who says that isn't so

I saw Eve and Adam driven from the door
I'm the man who picked the fig leaf that they wore
When the apple they were eating
I was from the bushes peeping
I can prove that I'm the man that ate the core

Queen Elizabeth, she fell in love with me, poor girl
We were married in Milwaukee secretly
Then I snuck around and shook her
'Cause I went with General Hooker
Just to fight mosquitoes down in Tennessee

I saw Noah when he built his famous ark
I slipped into it one night when it was dark
I saw Jonah swallow the whale
And I pulled the lion's tale
Then I crossed the land of Canaan on a lark

I taught Solomon his little ABC's
And I helped Brigham Young invent limburger cheese
Well I sailed out on the bay
With Methuselah one day
And I saved his flowing whiskers from the breeze
