De Camptown ladies sing dis song - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
De Camptown racetrack five miles long - Oh! doo-dah day!
I come down dah wid my hat caved in - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
I go back home wid a pocket full of tin - Oh! doo-dah day!


Chorus

Gwine to run all night! Gwine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on de bob-tail nag - Somebody bet on de bay!


De long tail filly and de big black hoss - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Dey fly de track and dey both cut across - Oh! doo-dah day!
De blind hoss sticken in a big mud hole - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Can't touch bottom wid a ten foot pole - Oh! doo-dah day!

Chorus

Old muley cow come on to de track - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
De bob-tail fling her ober his back - Oh! doo-dah day!
Den fly along like a rail-road car - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Runnin' a race with a shootin' star - Oh! doo-dah day!

Chorus

Seen dem flyin' on a ten mile heat - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
Round de race track, den repeat - Oh! doo-dah day!
I win my money on de bob-tail nag - Doo-dah! doo-dah!
I keep my money in an old tow-bag - Oh! doo-dah day!
