The Riddle Song
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


I gave my love a cherry that had no stone
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone
And I gave my love a ring that had to end
I gave my love a baby with no crying

Where is there a cherry that has no stone
Where is there a chicken that has no bone
And where is there a ring that has no end
And where is there a baby with no crying
Well a cherry when it blossoms has no stone
And a chicken when it's pippin has no bones
And a ring when it's rolling it has no end
And a baby when it's sleeping there's crying
