Some y'all never been down South too much...

Some y'all never been down South too much...

I'm gonna tell you a little story, so's you'll understand what I'm talking 'bout...

Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods and the fields, and it looks somethin' like a turnip green.

Ev'rybody calls it Polk Salad.

Now that's Polk! Salad!!

Lord have mercy.

Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenin's & pick her a mess of it...

Carry it home and cook it for supper, 'cause that's 'bout all they had to eat...

But they did all right.


(ELVIS Sings)...

[E]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[A] Annie

'Gators got ya[E] granny, chump-chump

Ev'ry[G]body said it was[A] a shame

Cus her [G]mama was-a[A] workin'[E]on-a chain-gang

a mean, vicious, woman! Ho!


[E]Ev'ryday 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 [A]Annie

'Gators got ya[E] granny oh yea

Ev'ry[G]body said it was-a[A] shame

'Cause her [G]mama was-a[A] workin'[E] on-a chain-gang

[E]A wretched, spiteful, straight-razor totin' woman,

Lord have mercy.

[E]Her daddy was a lazy & no-count

Claimed he had a bad back

All her brothers were fit for

Was stealing watermelons outta my truck patch
