leadbelly – boll weevil blues lyrics

Loading...

well the boll weevil and the little black bug
come from a-mexico they say
came all the way to texas
just a-lookin’ for a place to stay
just a-lookin’ for a home, just a-lookin’ for a home
(doo-doo-wop-wop)
well the first time that i seen the boll weevil
he was a-sittin’ on the square
well the next time that i seen him
he had his a-family there
just a-lookin’ for a home, just a-lookin’ for a home
(doo-doo-wop-wop)
well the farmer took the boll weevil
and he put him on the red hot sand
well the weevil said this is a-mighty hot
but i take it like a man
this will be my home, this will be my home

well the farmer took the boll weevil
and he put him on a keg of ice
well the weevil said to the farmer
this is mighty cool and nice
this will be my home, this will be my home
(doo-doo-wop-wop)
well if anybody should ask you
who it was who sang this song
say a guitar picker from a-oklahoma city
with a pair of blue jeans on
just a-lookin’ for a home, just a-lookin’ for a home
(doo-doo-wop-wop)
