    Lyrics

    Down in Mississippi where cotton grow tall,
    get arrested for trouble you got to call the hound dog
    Oh uh, down in Mississippi, whoa yeah, where the cotton grow tall
    Yes, and on the other hand, baby, boll weevil wearing overalls1

    Go to work in the morning, you know, 'bout 4 o'clock
    Uh, if the mule don't holler, yeah, I don't know when to stop
    Down in Mississippi, baby, uh whoa yeah, where the cotton grow tall
    Well, and on the other hand, baby, boll weevil wearing overalls

    I go to church in the morning, baby, you know, down the railroad track
    Late over in the evening they bring, bring the preacher back
    He eat up all the chicken now but uh right to the neck
    Look over at my baby and he eat up all the rest 'cause
    he was uh down in Mississippi
    Uh oh yeah, where the cotton grow tall
    Well now, and on the other hand, baby, boll weevil wearing overalls
