my lyricsbox
Way up yonder above the sky
A bluebird lived in a jaybird's eye.

Chorus:
Buckeye Jim, you can't go.
Go weave and spin, you can't go.
Buckeye Jim.

Way up yonder above the moon
A bluejay nests in a silver spoon.

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

Way down yonder in a holler log
A redbird danced with a green bullfrog.
This song is from the album "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" and "Burl Ives Sings Little White Duck And Other Children's Favourites".
