"The Legend of Daniel Boone" performed by Sam Tarpley, Tunes For Tots, Record #23, 45 RPM. Made in U.S.A. by Record Service Company, Inc., Nashville, Tennessee

Gotta story to tell about a frontier man
He never went to sleep without a rifle in his hand
He lived in the woods and he slept on the ground
When he was five he shot a buffalo down

He took a horn from the dead buffalo
And he whittled it out so as it would blow
Just a hoot and a toot though he couldn't blow a tune
But everybody know'd he was Daniel Boone

Daniel Boone was brave and he was strong
A hunter and a scout
He slept on the ground with the trees all around
While the Injuns roamed all about

He had an old gun he called Ticker-licker
She was known as a pretty good kicker
One day he was shootin' at a buffalo
It kicked him from Kentucky to Ohio

When he got up, he looked all around
He loaded up his gun, and he fired another round
And before ol' Dan could count to ten
It kicked him back to Kentucky again!

Daniel Boone was brave and he was strong
A fightin' man was he
He was quick as a flicker with old Ticker-Licker
And mighty as a tree

When the Shawnee Indians captured him
They tried to make him one of them
They yanked out his hair and scrubbed him down
And painted him up all red and brown

He was a sight, it hurt his pride
But he outfoxed that Shawnee tribe
Fifty miles he ran for early morn'
A hootin' and a tootin' his buffalo horn!

Daniel Boone was brave and he was strong
Was painted red and brown
He could run like a deer and showed no fear
When the Injuns came around

When he went a huntin' down in Tennessee
There he made more history
He carved these words for all to see
"Daniel Boone killed a bear at this here tree"

That's all there is, my story's told
'Bout the frontier man so brave and bold
The story you heard in this here tune
Is the true legend of Daniel Boone

Daniel Boone was brave and he was strong
A hunter and a scout
He slept on the ground with the trees all around
While the Injuns roamed all about
