Boll Weevil Song

This song is by Lead Belly and appears on the album Lead Belly's Last Sessions (1994).

Farmer asked the boll weevil, "A-where you been so long?"
I been down in the bottom, a-with my long clothes on"

Farmer taken the boll weevil, he put him in the ice
Boll weevil said to the farmer, "You treat me mighty nice"

Farmer taken the boll weevil, he put him in the sand
Boll weevil said to the farmer, "You just like a man"

Man said to the old lady, "What do you think of that?
I got one of them boll weevils out of my Stetson hat"

Farmer told the boll weevil, "Guess I wish you well"
Farmer said to boll weevil, "I hope you burn in hell"

Boll weevil said to the farmer, "I'm gonna put 'em right on your gate
I get through with your cotton field, you'll sell that Cadillac 8"

Boll weevil said to the farmer, "I'm gonna treat you mean
When I get through with your cotton fields, can't buy no gasoline"

Spoken: That's the way they sing that down in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
