Akin Drum Song Download with Lyrics
Akin Drum
Mp3 Song Download with PDF Lyrics

This is one of my favorite songs because it is funny and different every time you sing it. I first heard it from a banjo player in Pipestem, West Virginia at the South Appalachian Folklife Festival. He taught it to me as a “play party” song - which means a song used to entertain the kids while grown-ups got some time to themselves!

In other versions that I have heard, a second chorus is added : “He played upon his ladle, ladle, ladle, played upon his ladle and his name was Akin Drum....”

Demo MP3 Listen to a sample of this song.
