Let me tell ya a story about a boll weevil
Now some of you may not know but a boll weevil is an insect. and he's found

Mostly where cotton grows. now where he comes from hm nobody really knows.
But this is the way the story goes.

The farmer said to the boll weevil "i see you're on the square" boll weevil said to the
Farmer "say yep! my whole darn family's here"

The farmer said to the boll weevil "say why do you pick my farm?" the weevil just
Laughed at the farmer 'n' said "we ain't gonna do ya much harm"

Br ho-o-o-o-o-o-o-o -o-o-o o-o-ome"

Brbrand the boll weevil spotted a lightning bug. he said "hey i'd like to make a trade with

Bryou. but ya see if i was a lightning bug i'd search the whole night through"

Brsearchin' for a home i'd have me plenty of home"

Brbrand the boll weevil called the farmer 'n' he said "ya better sell your old machines
Br'cause when i'm through with your cotton heh you can't even buy gasoline." i'm gonna

Brstake me a home gotta have a home

Brbrand the boll weevil said to the farmer said " farmer i'd like to wish you well."

Brfarmer said to the boll weevil "yeah an' i wish that you were in ****"
Lookin' for a
Br home lookin' for a home (ahh you have a home all right you have a home (a real hot

Brhome ahhh
