Boy, this is a 'blast from the past'!!!
FUNNY songs you sing & play on your dulcimer
Sheepy and the Goat.
It's not ha ha funny, but kids like it. I learned it from Don Pedi the last time he visited north Alabama. I think Don said he was making a tab book of very simple tunes. See the video (unfortunately Don doesn't sing it here but he does play it) at https://dulcimercrossing.com/sheepy/dc_sheepy_md_pre.html
This short but good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YzMoHx1v10
The lyrics something like:
Sheepy and the Goat walkin’ through the pasture
“Sheepy” says- "Goat, can you walk a little faster?”
Sheepy got- tired and it lay down,
and the Poor little Goat kept pickin’ all around
[then you can add any animal you like]
Sheepy and duck...
Sheepy and the cow...
Sheepy and the aardvark...
Here's me play a LITTLE of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kISLCHJ6oTk&feature=youtu.be
