Song of the South lyrics

Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Gone, gone with the wind There ain't nobody lookin' back again Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch We all picked the cotton but we never got rich Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat They ought to get a rich man to vote ...he wind There ain't nobody lookin' back again Well somebody told us Wall Street fell But we were so poor that we couldn't tell Cotton was short and the weeds were tall But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all Well momma got sick and daddy got down The county got the farm and they moved to town Papa got a job with the TVA He bought a washin' machine and then a Chevrolet Sing it Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Gone, gone with the wind There ain't nobody lookin' back again Play it Sing it Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Gone, gone with the wind There ain't nobody lookin' back again Song, song of the south Gone, gone with the wind Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Gone, gone with the wind Ain't nobody lookin' back again Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth Gone, gone with the wind Ain't nobody lookin' back again Song, song of the south Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
