    Lyrics

    If some of ya'll never been down south too much
    I'm gonna tell you a little bit about this
    So that you'll understand what I'm talkin' about
    Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods
    And in the fields looks somethin' like a turnip green
    And everybody calls it polk salad, polk salad
    Used to know a girl lived down there
    And she'd go out in the evenings and pick her a mess of it
    Carry it home and cook it for supper
    'Cause thats about all they had to eat, but they did all right

    Down in Louisiana, where the alligators grow so mean
    There lived a girl, that I swear to the world
    Made the alligators look tame
    Polk salad Annie, polk salad Annie
    Everybody said it was a shame
    Cause her momma was a workin' on the chain gang
    (A mean vicious woman)

    Everyday ?for supper time, she'd go down by the truck patch
    And pick her a mess of polk salad, and carry it home in a tow sack
    Polk salad Annie, the gators got your granny
    Everybody says it was a shame
    Cause her momma was a workin' on the chain gang
    (A wretched, spiteful, straight-razor totin' woman
    Lord have Mercy, pick a mess of it)

    Her daddy was lazy and no count, claimed he had a bad back
    All her brothers were fit for was stealin' watermelons
    Out of my truck patch
    Polk salad Annie, the gators got your granny
    Everybody said it was a shame
    Cause her momma was a workin' on the chain gang
    (Sock a little polk salad to me, you know I need me a mess of it)
