I'm going down to Florida to find that love of mine; I mean the one with long black legs and dark brown eyes. Honey, why don't you blow these cotton fields down.
We'll walk up to Mississippi, where the southern crosses the yellow dog then catch a train out to Texarkana (baby loves Arkansas). We're going to blow the tobacco fields down.
Let's walk down into Texas (that's where she likes to be). She wants to dip her boots deep in the sand and watch me sip on the Texas tea. Why don't you blow those oil fields down.
It ain't my fault that your clothes fall off when the sun goes down...tell your mama and papa I've waited my turn but my turn ain't come around. The record labels don't pick me, the lord knows they don't pick me.
Way down at the Rio Grande she wants to head back east; but she gets tired of traveling and wants to stop down in New Orleans, that woman is going to blow the levee on down.
She said she was leaving, I said I'm better off alone; I better off down in Charlie's city so tell the girls daddy is coming home.
I'm going to blow the cotton fields down.
