Lyrics

De Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da,
De Camptown racetrack's five miles long,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Gwine to run all night,
Gwine to run all day,
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag,
Somebody bet on the gray.

Oh, de long tailed filly and de big black horse,
Doo-da, doo-da,
Come to a mud hole and dey all cut across,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Gwine to run all night,
Gwine to run all day,
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag,
Somebody bet on the gray.

I went down South with my hat caved in,
Doo-da, doo-da,
I came back North with a pocket full of tin,
Oh, de doo-da day.

Gwine to run all night,
Gwine to run all day,
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag,
Somebody bet on the gray.
