Old Man Duff
Written and Recorded by Tex Morton

 
C 
Old man Duff was doggone tough  
G7 
why they called him dyna
C 
mite
 
On the mattress filled with broken glass he  
D7 
rested well each  
G7 
night
 
He  
F 
combed his hair with a  
C 
garden rake and ate his vitals  
G7 
raw
 
He  
C 
picked his teeth with a horse shoe nail
 
And  
G7 
shaved his beard with a  
C 
saw
F 
Old man Duff was  
C 
very rough and tough as a man could  
G7 
be
 
He  
F 
ate wire nails and the  
C 
bones of whales and drank  
G7 
gasoline for  
C 
tea
 
Old man Duff had thirteen sons but he  
G7 
beat them all to  
C 
death
 
He choked all the cops so dog-gone they  
D7 
died from the lack  
G7 
breath
 
The  
F 
sheriff went up to  
C 
arrest old Duff but he made a big  
G7 
mistake
 
Old  
C 
Duff picked him up by the seat of the pants
 
And  
G7 
threw him out in the  
C 
lake
F 
Old man Duff was  
C 
very rough and tough as a man could  
G7 
be
 
Had  
F 
big floppy ears as  
C 
long as a steers
 
And his hair hung  
G7 
down to his  
C 
knees
 
I-lee-ol-lee-tee  
F 
loo-e-do o-lee-loo lee-do-lee-do  
C 
lee-do 
 
lee-do
 
Lee-do lee-do o-lee-
G7 
ol-lee-tee 
 
O-lee-ol-lee-
C 
tee
 
Old man Duff had a daughter fair but she  
G7 
died a poor old  
C 
maid
 
Many a man would've courted her but  
D7 
they were all  
G7 
afraid
 
Old  
F 
Duff once found a  
C 
fella with her why they heard him rave and  
G7 
shout
 
He  
C 
shoved his fist down the poor man's throat and  
G7 
turned him inside  
C 
out
 
Old man Duff lived a thousand years then he  
G7 
died and went  
C 
below
 
When old satan looked at him he  
D7 
smiled and said  
G7 
hello
 
Now  
F 
that fire was  
C 
mighty hot when the put old Duff in  
G7 
there
 
But  
C 
he laid right down and he went to sleep and  
G7 
never singed a  
C 
hair
F 
Old man Duff was very rough and  
C 
tough as a man could  
G7 
be
 
Had  
F 
hair on his chest and he  
C 
wore no vest
 
And he looked like a  
G7 
chimpan
C 
zee
 
I-lee-do lee-do  
G7 
o-lee-ol-lee-
C 
tee
