Sourwood Mountain is a traditional American folk song that has been covered by numerous artists and is performed by Hallie Jordan in the Season Five episode A Little Bit Stronger.  She plays it for a group of children who sing along as Juliette arrives at the community center.

It is included on the deluxe version of The Music of Nashville (Season 5, Volume 2).


Chickens a-crowin' on Sourwood Mountain,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day
So many pretty girls I can't count 'em,
Hey ho, diddle-um day.

My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
She won't come and I'm too lazy

Big dog bark and little one bite you,
Big girl court and little one spite you

My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
If I don't get her, I'll go crazy

My true love lives at the head of the holler,
She won't come and I won't foller

My true love lives over the river,
A few more jumps and I'll be with her

Ducks in the pond, geese in the ocean,
Devil's in the women if they take a notion
