This was a regional hit for the Nightcrawlers in a zillion different cities
from roughly 10/65 through 4/67, but never hit in enough areas simultaneously
to squeak any higher than #85 in Billboard.  No, I don't know what it's about,
either.  --AWR

Verse 1: [12-string plays intro riff throughout]

A        E    D         A     (A) E  D  A
	I don't care what they say
	A          E       D  A     (A) E  D  A
	I'm gonna keep it anyway
	A        E          D            A     (A) E  D  A
	I won't let them stretch their necks
	A                       E             D            A     (A) E  D  A
	To see my little black egg with the little white specks

Chorus:

F#m              E           [slide up to F#m throughout]
	I found it in a tree
	F#m             E
	Just the other day
	F#m           E
	And now it's mine, all mine
	F#                   E	     [yes, F# major here]
	They won't take it away

[my Kapp single goes directly to next verse; the version on the
	 Rhino "Nuggets" comp repeats intro riff twice]

Verse 2:

Here comes Mary, here comes Lee
	I'll bet what they want to see
	I won't let them stretch their necks
	To see my little black egg with the little white specks

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

Oh, goldurn, what can I do?
	The little black egg's gonna tell on you
	I won't let them stretch their necks
	To see my little black egg with the little white specks

Coda:

A            E    D   A
	The little black egg...      [repeat to fade]
