Camptown Races

The Innsmouth ladies sing this song
Doo dah, doo dah
The Innsmouth swim track's five miles long
Oh de doo dah day.
I come down there with my hat caved in
Doo day, doo dah.
I go back home with a belly fulla gin
Oh de doo dah day.

Goin to swim all night,
Going to swim all day,
I bet my money on a killer whale
Somebody bet on a ray.

They swim way faster than a rail road car
Doo dah, doo dah
Runnin a race with a shootin star
Oh de doo dah day
See them swimmin 'round Devil Reef
Doo dah, doo dah
Visit with Dagon, make it brief,
Oh do dah day.



Cattle Call

CHORUS: We swim into the sun
Till our days work is done
And we swim to R'lyeh each fall
Singing our ancient call

The fish are a prowlin
The whales are a howlin
Way out where Yuggya roam.
Our hearts are a feather
In all kinds of weather
As we sing our ancient call


We visit Cthulhu
And check in with Ubb
We sing our ancient song.
And we swim to R'lyeh
Singing our ancient call



Amazing Grace

Amazing Ubb! We hear the Call!
Its word our life secures.
A loving Parent to us all
As long as life endures.

Through many dangers, toils and snares,
We have already come;
’Tis Ubb that brought us safe thus far,
And Ubb will lead us home.

And, when this space and time does fail,
And all dimensions cease,
We will possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth will soon dissolve like snow,
The sun will shine no more;
But Ubb, who made us here below,
Will be just as before.

When we’ve been here ten billion years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing Ubb’s praise
Than when we’d first begun.


Jesse James
JOMO THE OUTLAW (song sung by humans)

Jomo, we understand, he killed many a man;
He robbed a lot of trains.
He stole from the rich and he gave to the poor,
Had a hand and a heart and good brains.

Now Jomo rode a steed
With unnatural speed.
He had skills no one ever'd seen.
But history does record
He had supernatural powers;
So he must have been an Angel of the Lord.

There were some other outlaws, dirty little cowards;
And to them fast-gun Jomo gave,
He gave them bread and he gave them beds
Then they tried and failed to lay him in the grave.

Jomo was a friend to all of the poor
He never would see a child suffer pain,
So off Jomo went, to rob another bank
And to wreck another train.

And then one time when he robbed a bank,
And carried the money out of town;
With a posse on his trail, he had a little race,
Then he shot them all to the ground.

It was Sunday noon, and Jomo's last ride,
He stopped in the town in full sight
The soldiers and the Sheriff and the townsfolk saw
Jomo vanish in a blaze of bright light.
(FAST clapping, sticks and maraccas)


Jesse James

Jomo he wanders, wherever, when,
But he always can be found
He's done some awful crimes and some wonderful deeds,
And he loves to play around.

Now Jomo's famous steed
Had unnatural speed
He has skills no one ever'd seen
But all who've known him say
He has supernatural powers
But he sure as hell ain't no angel of our Lord.

Jomo is cute, in a tough sort of way,
Has big lips, big heart, big mmmmm
Has a great sense of humor and he clowns around
And with women he sure can be slick.


He moves through dimensions, flies through space
He likes to go real fast.
He's a Yuggya from Yhe and his maker is Ubb
And he has an incredible past.



She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain

She'll be coming up from the Reef when she comes
She'll be coming up from the Reef when she comes
She'll be coming up from the Reef, she'll be coming up from the Reef,
She'll be coming up from the Reef when she comes

Oh, we'll all swim out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all swim out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all swim out to meet her, we'll all swim out to meet her,
We'll all swim out to meet her when she comes

She will have to sleep with Dagon when she comes
She will have to sleep with Dagon when she comes
She will have to sleep with Dagon, she will have to sleep with Dagon,
She will have to sleep with Dagon when she comes

4th verse clapping and maracas and sticks



'Mid pleasures and palaces
Though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble,
There's no place like home.
A charm from the skies
Seems to hallow us there,
Which seek thro' the world,
Is ne'er met with elsewhere.

I gaze on the moon
As I tread the ocean wild,
And feel that my parent
Is thinking of Its child;
The whales singing gaily,
That came at my call:
There's no place like home,
None to compare at all.


Home on the Range

Oh give me a home, where the Orca all roam,
Where the ray and the octopi play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the tides are real salty all day.

Home, home in the sea,
Where the ray and the octopi play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the tides are real salty all day.

Where the air is so pure, the creatures so free,
The currents so swirling and light.
That I'd not exchange my home in the sea
For all of the cities so bright.


Oh give me a land where the bright diamond sand
Flows leisurely down the stream;
Where the graceful white clouds go gliding along
Like maids in a heavenly dream.


How often at night when the heavens are bright
With the light of the glittering stars,
Have I floated amazed and asked as I gazed
If their glory exceeds that of ours.



Dixie Land

Oh I wish I was in the Pacific ocean
Good times there filled with emotion
Look away, look away, look away R'lyeh land
In R'lyeh land where I was born
Early in earth's primordial dawn
Look away, look away, look away R'lyeh land

I wish I was in R'lyeh, away away
In R'lyeh land I'll take my stand,
To live and die in R'lyeh
Look away, away, away down there in R'lyeh

Here's a cheer to the next dear missus
And all the gals that want to kiss us
Look away, look away, look away R'lyeh land
Now if you want to drive away sorrow
Come and hear this song tomorrow
Look away, look away, look away R'lyeh land



(Music Rollin rollin rollin, rollin rollin rollin
rollin rollin rollin.)

Rollin rollin rollin
Through the streams are swollen
Keep them waves a-rolling
Aye ya

Wind and sky and ocean
Our minions are in motion
Wishing a Yugg was by my side.
All the things I'm missin,
Lots of hugs and kissin
Are waiting at the end of my ride.

Move em up (head em up)
Head em up (move em up)
Move em up (head em up)
Aye ya
Cut em out (ride em in)
Ride em in (cut em out)
Cut em out (ride em in
Aye ya.

Keep movin movin movin
No sense disapprovin
We just keep on groovin
Aye ya
Don't try to understand them
Just grab, catch and eat them
Yeah we are hunting for the thrill
My heart's calculating
My kin-folk will be waiting
Be waiting at the end for the kill.




From this valley they say you are going
I will miss your big eyes and wide smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our path for a while

CHORUS: Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the woman who loved you so true

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be?
Oh think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are causing to me


As you go to your home in the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River Valley
And the love we exchanged mid the flowers


Rocky Top

Wish that I was out on old Devil Reef
Down past the Innsmouth peer
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Devil Reef
Ain't no thing to fear.
Once there was a girl on Devil Reef
Half fish the other half frog,
Wild as a shark and wearin a fig leaf
All surrounded by fog.

Devil Reef you'll always be
Home sweet home to me
Good old Devil Reef
Devil Reef Yahanth-layee, Devil Reef Yahanth-layee

Once two strangers swam to Devil Reef
Lookin for a moonshine still
Strangers ain't come back from Devil Reef
Guess they never will.
Nothing's brewed at all on Devil Reef
It's too rocky by far.
That's why all the folks on Devil Reef
Get their booze from a jar.



Yellow Rose

There's a pretty gal in Innsmouth, that I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

When the Miskatonic's flowing, the starry skies are bright.
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night:
I know that she remembers, when we parted long ago,
I promise to return again, and not to leave her so.

Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing songs together, that we sung so long ago.
We'll play the reed flutes gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the pretty gal of Innsmouth shall be mine forevermore.

She's the sweetest little Deep One that Innsmouth ever knew,
Here eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew.
You can talk about those movie stars and girls you rate a ten,
But the pretty gal of Innsmouth is way beyond your ken.


Oh Suzanna

I come from Massachusetts
Way out far beyond the shore,
And I'm going to throw in all my bets:
To see my love of yore.

OH my sweetest
Oh don't you cry for me.
I'm going to try my honest best
To take you to the sea.

It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry.
The sun
so hot, I froze to death
Oh dear girl don't you cry.


I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw my dearest drinkin
Moonshine from a still.


The gallon jug was in her mouth
A glaze was in her eye
Says I I'm coming soon enough
So dear girl don't be shy.



Yellow Rose (different tune)

There's a Yuggya in Hawaii
That I am going to see,
No other woman knows him,
No other, only me.
I was sad when I left him,
It really broke my heart,
And if I ever find him
I know we'll never part.

He's the sweetest Yuggya
A woman ever knew
His eyes are long and slanted
A beautiful green-blue
You may talk about your boyfriend
Or handsome movie star
My Yuggya in Hawaii
Beats all those men by far.

Oh, now I'm going to find him,
My heart is full of glee,
We'll sing the song together,
The song of Olden Yhe
We'll hug and kiss and make love
And cuddle through the night
Once we are together
I'm sure I'll be all right.


El Paso
Words by Lady Chandra, Mermaid of the Moon

Down in the dreariest swamp of R'lyeh
I fell in love with a tentacled thing
Nightime would find me in Nightsider's Tavern
Folks would scream "IA" and Cthulhu would twirl

Blacker than night were the eyes of Cthulhu
Wicked and evil while casting a spell
My love was deep for this tentacled monster
I was in love, but in vain I could tell

(Chorus 1)
One night a wild young mermaid came in
Wild as the typhonic wind
Topless and flirty, a drink she was sharing
With wicked Cthulhu, the one that I loved
So in anger

I challenged her right for the love of this monster
Down went her hand for the squidling she wore
My challenge was answered in less than a heartbeat
The lovely young mermaid lay dead on the floor

Just for a moment I stood there in silence
Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
I had but one chance and that was no fun

(Chorus 2)
Out through the back door I hastily swam
Out where seahorses were tied
I caught a good one, it looked like it could swim
Up on its back and away I did ride
Just as fast as

I could. From the dreariest swamp of R'lyeh
Out to the badlands of Antarctica
Back in Green R'lyeh my life would be worthless
Everything's gone; in life nothing is left

It's been so long since I've seen the old monster
My love is stronger than my fear of death
(music is played, this verse has two lines)

(Chorus 3)
I saddled up and away I did go
Swimming alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow a squid barb will find me
Tonight' nothing's worse than this pain in my heart
And at last here

I am on the hill overlooking R'lyeh
I can see Nightsider's Tavern below
My love is strong and it pushes me downward
Down off the reef to Cthulhu I go

Off to my right I see five mounted squidboys
Off to my left swim a dozen or more
Shouting and shooting, I can't let them catch me
I have to make it to Nightsider's door

(Chorus 4)
Something is dreadfully wrong, for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side
Thought I am trying to stay in the saddle
I'm getting weary, unable to hide
But my love for

Cthulhu is strong and I rise where I've fallen
Though I am weary, I can't stop to rest
I see the black pools of ink from the squidgun
I feel the squid barb go deep in my breast

From out of nowhere Chtulhu has found me
Kissing my cheek as he squeals by my side
Cradled by so many arms that I'll die for
One little kiss, then Chtulhu good-bye
