Los Lonely Boys Lyrics

Polk Salad Annie


If someone of y'all never been down south too much

I'm gonna tell you a little bit about this

So that you'll understand what I'm talking about


Down there we have a plant that grows

Out in the woods and the fields

Looks somethin' like a turnip green


Everybody calls it Polk salad, Polk salad

Used to know a girl that lived down there

And she'd go out in the evenings and pick 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


Down in Louisiana where the alligators grow so mean

There lived a girl that I swear to the world

Made the alligators look tame


Polk salad Annie, Polk salad Annie

Everybody said it was a shame

'Cause her mama was working on chain gang

(A mean, vicious woman)


Everyday 'fore supper time she'd go down by the truck patch

And pick her a mess o' Polk salad and carry it home in a tote sack


Polk salad Annie, 'gators got you granny

Everybody said it was a shame

'Cause her mama was a workin' on the chain gang

(A wretched spiteful, straight-razor totin' woman)

(Lord have mercy, pick mess of it)


Her daddy was lazy and no count, claimed he had a bad back

All her brothers were fit for was stealin' watermelons out of my truck patch


Polk salad Annie, the 'gators got you granny

Everybody said it was a shame

'Cause her mama was a working on the chain-gang

(Sock a little Polk salad to me)

(You know I need a mess of it)
