4 -3 3 3 2 3 -3 3
Way up yon-der a-bove the sky
2 3 -3 3 2 2 -3 2 2-1 1
A blue-bird lived in a jay-bird’s eye.

Chorus:

Buck-eye Jim, you can’t go
3 3 -3 1 1 -1 2
Go weave and spin, you can’t go
2 -1 1
Buck-eye Jim

Way up yonder above the moon
A jaybird lived in a silver spoon.

Way down yonder in a wooden trough
An old woman died of the whoopin’ cough.

Way up yonder above the sky
A jaybird spit in a bluebird’s eye.
