LYRICS

Some of you all have been down south too much
Some of you all never been down south too
I gonna tell you a little story
So you’ll understand where I’m talking about
Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods and the fields
And it looks something like a turnip green
Everybody calls it Polk salad
Now that’s Polk salad
Used to know a girl that lived down there and
She’d go out in the evenings to pick a mess of it
Carry it home and cook it for supper
’Cause that’s about all they had to eat
But they did all right

Down in Louisiana
Where the alligators grow so mean
Lived a girl that I swear to the world
Made the alligators look tame

Polk salad Annie
'Gators got your granny
Everybody said it was a shame
For the mama was working on the chain-gang
What a mean, vicious woman

Everyday before supper time
She'd go down by the truck patch
And pick her a mess of Polk salad
And carry it home in a tote sack

Polk salad Annie
'Gators got you granny
Everybody said it was a shame
'Cause the mama was working on the chain-gang
How wretched, dispiteful, straight-razor totin' woman
Lord have mercy

Sock a little Polk salad to him
You know what?

But daddy was a lazy and a no-count
Claimed he had a bad back
All her brothers were fit for
Was stealing watermelons out of my truck

For once Polk salad Annie
'Gators got your granny
Everybody said it was a shame
For the mama was working on the chain-gang

Sock a little Polk salad to him
You know what meets a meal mention
You sock a little
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah

Sock a little Polk salad to him
You know what meets a meal mention
Sock a little Polk salad to him
You know what meets a meal mention

Chinc, chinc, chinc, chin, ling, ling ling
Chinc, chinc, chinc, chin, ling, ling ling
Chinc, chinc, chinc, chin, ling, ling ling
Chinc, chinc, chinc, chin, ling, ling ling
