X: 1 T: 75. HOG EYE AN' A 'TATER B: Sam Bayard, "Hill Country Tunes" 1944 #75 S: Played by Irvin Yaugher Jr, Mt Independence, PA, Oct 19 1943. As played by his great-uncle. N: This is not the melody which accompanies the well known and often recorded sea shanty called N: "Hog eye," nor is it the playparty song tune with a similar name known farther south (see N: Sharp-Karpeles, "English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians, II, No.250). A somewhat N: different version, with the parts in reverse order, is in Bayard Coll., No.288, from Greene N: County, where the title is simply "Hog Eye," and has an indecent meaning. N: N: In Fayette County, this tune has the following associated rhyme: N: I went down to Sally's house N: 'Bout ten o'clock or later; N: All she had to give to me N: Was a hog-eye and a 'tater. N: The rhyme accompanying the set known in Greene County is: N: As I was going down the street, N: A pretty little girl I chanced to meet; N: I stepped right up and kissed her sweet, N: And asked her for some hog-eye meat. N: No other sets of the tune are known to the editor.
