A Turkey Ran Away

Traditional Appalachian
Chorus and additional lyrics by Sandy Byer

1.
A turkey ran away,
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a meal of me
If I would stay.

(chorus)
And it ran and it ran and it ran and it ran
Through the ice and freezing snow.
It ran and it ran and it ran and it ran,
As fast as he could go.

2.
A potato rolled away
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a soup of me
If I would stay.

(sing chorus)

3.
A pumpkin ran away,
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a pie of me
If I would stay.

(sing chorus)

4.
A cranberry bounced away
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a sauce of me
If I would stay.

(sing chorus)

5.
An apple ran away,
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a juice of me
If I would stay.

(sing chorus)

6.
A turkey ran away,
Before Thanksgiving day,
For you would make a feast of me
If I would stay.
