Polk Salad Annie

Text písně Polk Salad Annie

Some of you all never been down South too much... 
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 suppertime 
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 
Whoo, how wretched, dispiteful, straight-razor totin' woman, 
Lord have mercy. 


Sock a little Polk salad to him 
Yeah, you know what, yeah, yeah 


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 
Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon 
Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon 
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
