  • Go jack-rabbit running through the wood
    You had a good night and you feel real loose
    Heard they got you going round the goosecreek shed
    Trying to fill your belly full of buckshot lead

    Go jack-rabbit get the cabbage patch
    Farmer left the back porch door on the latch
    Heard you coming and he got his gun
    Better go jack-rabbit better start to run

    Go jack-rabbit running through the wood
    You had a good night and you feel real loose
    Gunfire breaking up the peaceful night
    Jack-rabbit lying in the cold daylight Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
