Tennessee Coon Hunt

Written by Austin Varnell

As I pull into my honeyhole,
and drop the tailgate down,
I look into the faces,
of two big ol' hounds,

I turn em loose,
and look at the moon,
then give em a holler,
"go tree me a coon",

I hear em strike,
there raisin hell,
burnin the hair off an old ringtail.
