Reel 379 Item 4
Way Down in Arkansas
A way down south where I was born,
Amidst the cotton and the golden corn,
That's the place I want to be,
In that land of hospitality,
Where the jay birds sweetly sing,
Same in the winter as they do in the spring, I guess I will grab that south bound train, And go back to my old home again.
A way down, way down in Arkansas,
You'll find the turkey in the straw,
And the rooster crowing at the break of day, On an old oak stump amid the new mown hay, Now that's where my great grandpa,
First met my great grandma,
And they settled down together,
Because they loved each other,
A way down in Arkansas.
