Me And Opie Down By The Duckpond

BR-549

Tom: G
Transcribed by Casey Heilman 
This song is as basic as it gets. As you can see it follows the 1-4-5 pattern 
that 95% of all country songs are arranged into. For your voice you may want to 
move the chords up or down. Up would be A-D-E instead of G-C-D and down would 
be E-A-B. If you do not understand how I did this, please study the circle of 
fifths. That info is all over the net. Otherwise, enjoy this song as it is a 
work of art.  
 
The recorded version begins with a voiceover about this being, 'The tale of the  
lost episode of the Andy Griffith Show. It is a tale of indecency, drug abuse,  
and corruption of children.' Then the song begins with just a snare drum laying  
down the rhythm. The first verse is pretty much acapella, with the entire band  
entering after he says 'pond'. Also, the last 'down by the duck pond' is sung  
really slow and pretty, like harmonized and junk. 
 
Enjoy. 
 
 
G                                C 
Don't tell Andy, don't tell Aunt Bee  
G                        D        G 
They'll come lookin' for Opie and me 
G                                     C  
Tell 'em we're dead or tell 'em we're gone 
G                D           G         
Me and Opie down by the duck pond  
 
Well, Goober brought down some homegrown 'hay'  
It whomped me upside the head, I never felt that way  
Aunt Bee said we'd be in dutch  
If the sherrif ever caught us smokin' that stuff  
 
Don't tell Andy, don't tell Aunt Bee  
They'll come lookin' for Opie and me  
Tell 'em we're dead or tell 'em we're gone  
Me and Opie down by the duck pond  
 
I heard a little holler down in the woods  
Sounded like a soul sayin', 'Mmm mmm good!'  
Moved a little closer, sneakin' like a squirrel  
Otis was slurpin' up his favorite girrrrrl  
 
Now Otis said, 'Boys come sit by the still  
I'll pour you up a jar of that famous swill  
If you can't walk don't worry no way  
Now LIGHT THAT PIPE and pass it my way!'  
 
Don't tell Andy, don't tell Aunt Bee  
They'll come lookin' for Opie and me  
Tell 'em we're dead or tell 'em we're gone  
Me and Opie down by the duck pond  
 
I had to dodge a rock that was hittin' the tree  
Out of the swamp came Ernest T.  
Gold tooth flashin' as he hit that pipe  
Out of the blue came Barney Fiiiiife!  
 
Well now Barney come down to nip that still  
Wavin' an axe, a lawman's thrill  
Opie, don't smoke, you'll turn yourself green  
Give me up a puff and I'll show you what I mean  
 
Don't tell Andy, don't tell Aunt Bee  
They'll come lookin' for Opie and me  
Tell 'em we're dead or tell 'em we're gone  
Me and Opie down by the duck pond  
 
We all sat there for most of the night  
Trying to figure out our left from our right  
Here comes Andy and old Aunt Bee  
Scoldin' the hell out of Opie and me  
 
Don't tell Andy, don't tell Aunt Bee  
They'll come lookin' for Opie and me  
Tell 'em we're dead or tell 'em we're gone  
Me and Opie.... Down by the duck Pond.
