The fox went out on a chilly night 
                          E 
He prayed for the moon to give him light 
A                       D 
For heâd many a mile to go that night 
A         E           A       E       A 
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o 
D                   A              E                     A

He ran til he came to the farmerâs pen 
                             E 
The ducks and the geese were kept therein 
A                                   D 
He said, ãa couple of you are gonna grease my chin, 
A        E          A       E       A 
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-oä

He grabbed the great goose by the neck 
                    E 
And he threw a duck across his back 
A                      D 
And he didnât mind the quack, quack 
A                E        A       E       A 
And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o 
D                     A                    E                 A 
He didnât mind the quack, quack and the legs all dangling down-o

The old grey woman jumped out of bed 
                      E 
Out of the window she popped her head, 
A                            D 
Crying John, John, the great goose is gone 
A              E      A       E       A 
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o 
D                     A                     E             A 
John, John, the great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o 
 
 
A 
He ran til he came to his nice warm den 
                                E 
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten 
A                          D 
Sayin Daddy, Daddy, better go back again 
A                E          A       E       A 
For it must be a might fine town-o, town-o, town-o 
D             A                    E                   A 
Daddy, Daddy, go back again for it must be mighty fine town-o 
 
 
A 
The fox and his wife, without any strife 
                        E 
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife 
A                     D 
They never had such a supper in their life 
A                   E             A        E        A 
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o 
D                     A 
They never had such a supper in their life 
        E                         A 
And the little ones chewed on the bones
