beggerman's rigadoo

I'd forgotten about bindles when I photoshopped Brian Hobbs' bats into asymmetric poles. I called them hobo poles as a way of making a tramp art reference, because that's what the carving looks like to me, shorn of any other heavy sociopolitical associations one might give the objects being carved.

"Little Beggar Man" as arranged by Arlo Guthrie

“I am a little beggar and a beggar I have been / For three score’r more in this little Isle of green / And I’m known from the Liffy down to Segue / And I’m known by the name of bold Donahue / Of all the trades a-goin’ now sure beggin is the best / When a man gets tired he can lay him down to rest / He can beg for his dinner when there’s nothing left to do / Then just cut around the corner with his old Rigadoo / I slept in a barn way down in Curabawn / A-waitin’ in for the mornin’ I slept till the dawn / With the holes in the roof and the rain a-comin’ through / And the cats and the rats they were playin’ peeka-boo / Who should awaken but the woman of the house / With her white spotted apron and her calico blouse / She began to frighten when I said boo! / Sayin’ don’t be afraid ma’am it’s old Johnny Dhu / I met a little flaxy haired girl one day, / Good morning little flaxy haired girl I say / Good morning little Beggar Man and how do you do / With your rags and your tags and your old Rigadoo / Over the fields with the pack on my back / Over the field with my great heavy sack / With the holes in my shoes and the toes a’peekin’ through / Singin’ skittilee rink-a-doodle it’s the old Johnny Dhu / Must be going to bed boys, it’s getting’ late at night / All the fire’s all raked and up goes the light / And now you’ve heard the story of my old Rigadoo / It’s ‘Good-bye God be with you’ sings the old Johnny Dhu.”

I already tried. It's really hard, not to mention--at least coming out of my mouth--discordant.

Chances are Arlo learned it from the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem.
