"Polk Salad Annie (Live)"

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
