Polk Salad Annie - Elvis Presley

Tabbed by JerseyRock!!!  ENJOY!!!

  
Spoken:
Some of yall never been down South too much
I'm a tell you a little story
so's you'll understand where I'm talking about
Down there we have a plant that grows 
out in the woods and the fields
and it looks something like a turnip green
Everybody calls it Polk salad
Now that's   POLK, SALAD.
Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenings to pick a mess of it
Carry it home and cook it for supper, 
cause that's about all they had to eat
But they did all right.



E
Down in Louisiana
E
Where the alligators grow so mean
E
Lived a girl that I swear to the world
E    N.C.
Made the alligators look tame


           A
Polk salad Annie
                E
Gators got your granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
        G                       A          E
For the mama was working on the chain gang
E
What a mean vicious woman


E
Everyday before suppertime
E
She'd go down by the truck patch
E
And pick her a mess of Polk salad
E         N.C.
And carry it home in a tote sack


           A
Polk salad Annie
               E
Gators got you granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
          G                       A          E
Cause her mama was working on the chain gang
E
How wretched, dispiteful, straight razor totin woman,
E
Lord have mercy.


E
Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
You know what


E
But daddy was a lazy and a no count
E
Claimed he had a bad back
E
All her brothers were fit for
E        N.C.
Stealing watermelons out of my truck


           A
Polk salad Annie
                E
Gators got your granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
        G                       A          E
For the mama was working on the chain gang


E
Ya Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
You know what meets a meal
E
You sock a little


E
Sock a little Polk salad to him...
