Cornbread and Butterbeans
Cornbread and butterbeans and you across the table*
Eatin' beans and makin' love as long as I am able
Growin' corn and cotton too and when the day is over
Ride the mule and cut the fool and love again all over
Hoein' corn and cotton too I'm going to Louisiana
To buy a coon dog and a big fat hog and marry Susie Anna
Same song ding dong I'll take a trip to China
Cornbread and butterbeans then back to North Carolina

[Repeat Chorus:]
Wearin' shoes and drinking booze it goes against the Bible
A necktie will make you die and cause you lots of trouble
Streetcars and whiskey bars and kissing pretty women
Women yeah that's the end of a terrible beginning

[Repeat Chorus:]
I can't read and don't care and education's awful
Raising heck and writin' checks it ought to be unlawful
Silk hose and frilly clothes is just a waste of money
Come with me and stay with me and say you
Ll be my honey

[Repeat Chorus:]

[Repeat Chorus:]
