    Leave fatback and a copper penny
    on a wound 'til it draw out the poison,
    'til the penny turn green.

    Tobacco's what works on a bee-sting
    but for poison ivy - I'm serious, now -
    catch your first morning urine in your hands
    and splash it on that rash.

    When they had the diptheria epidemic
    I was burning up with fever, burning and burning.
    When the doctor left the house, my grandmother
    snuck in the back door with a croaker sack of mackerel.
    She wrapped me all up in that salt mackerel.
    The next morning my fever broke
    and the fish was all cooked.
