Pig in a Pen lyrics

I got a pig at home in a pen
Corn to feed him on
All I need's a pretty little girl
To feed I'm when I'm gone

Going up on a mountain
To sow a little cane
Put that old gray bonnet
On little Liza Jane

* Refrain

Going up on a mountain
To sow a little cane
Raise a barrel of sorghum
Sweet little Liza Jane

* Refrain

Black smoke arising
Sure sign of rain
Put that old gray bonnet
On little Liza Jane

* Refrain

Yonder comes that gal of mine
How do you think I know
Tell by that gingham gown
Hanging down so low

* Refrain

Bake them biscuits baby
Bake em good and brown
When you get them biscuits baked
We're Alabama bound

* Refrain
